In this episode, we are joined by Elliot Epstein to call BS on Performance Improvement Plans or PIPs. For decades we heard this acronym echo in the halls of companies and HR departments across the world. Did you put them on a PIP? Is there a PIP? What the heck is a PIP? Well, we call BS on the PIP. We think the better way is to instill in managers that they're responsible for: Fostering ongoing, candid, and respectful multi-directional feedback Understanding how to diagnose and address performance issues Generally take a proactive versus reactive approach is much better than the (often bureaucratic) exercise of a PIP. Guest Bio Elliot Epstein is the Head of People at Galileo, a healthcare startup that's dedicated to improving access to high-quality, affordable healthcare for all people--regardless of socioeconomic backgrounds--through innovative models and sophisticated technology. He has dedicated his career to building and scaling People functions in mission-driven organizations. Mr. Epstein holds a bachelor's degree in Psychology from Brown University, where he graduated magna cum laude. He began his career as a Fellow in Public Affairs through the Coro New York Leadership Center and went on to join Teach For America's New York City corps, where he led elementary school students to significant academic gains. Outside of work, Elliot enjoys improv theater, crossfit, and serving on the board of a new elementary charter school in the Bronx. He lives in Manhattan with his husband, daughter, and rescue dog.
