We're Only Human 17 - How to Build a Performance Management Approach That Works

Host: Ben Eubanks

Guest: Autumn Spehar, Stout Advisory

Performance management is one of the most hated HR systems in existence. Yet virtually every employer has a need to measure performance, set goals, and give feedback. So, what's the right balance between a system that meets the needs of business leaders and one that meets the needs of the employees? 

In today's discussion with Autumn Spehar of Stout Advisory, Ben delves deep into this question by asking Autumn to describe her company's transition from annual, paper-based performance management to a technology-enabled approach utilizing continuous feedback, real-time recognition, frequent check-ins, and more. This conversation is more than theory--it's based on a year of practice in using the system, including the ups and downs that any company might face in this kind of transition.

Listeners to this episode will not only get to hear about Stout's new outlook on performance, but they will be treated to some insightful commentary about the connections between culture, behavior change, and other elements that some of the "headlines" on performance management seem to miss. If you're in charge of performance management at your company or you think your system could use a refresh, this is the episode for you!
