What is continuous performance management?

Continuous performance management™ is a process where employees exchange lightweight, ongoing feedback and managers and employees have frequent coaching conversations. Leading companies switch from traditional to continuous performance management to ensure alignment, drive high performance and improve employee engagement.

Continuous Performance Management

Traditional performance management just isn’t working. Today’s HR leaders want an easy, better way to help managers become effective coaches and improve employee performance.

Here's the reality:


Only 6% of organizations believe their current process for managing performance is worth the time


Less than one-third (31.5%) of U.S. workers are engaged in their jobs


Already, 10% of Fortune 500 companies have done away with the annual performance review.
