A performance program should help managers to communicate key objectives, to set and align goals, and to coach direct reports to improve performance and business outcomes. However, our research found that many managers view their current performance processes as outdated and more of a hindrance than a help. In fact, just 22% of managers with teams of 10 or fewer reported being very satisfied with their company’s non-continuous performance management process. Compare this with managers at companies with a continuous process in place, who report significantly higher satisfaction in several key areas, including:
- Feeling supported to become a better manager (+44%)
- Feeling supported by HR in managing the performance of their team (+50%)
- Being equipped with HR technology that is easy to use correctly (+35%)
- Being supported to develop their team’s skills (+48%)
- Being supported to develop their own individual skills (+45%)
