Connected Conversations and the Evolution of Performance Management

Connected conversations are part of a movement in business, especially in the areas of HR and professional development, towards a view that the traditional performance review isn’t fit for purpose – for either employees or employers.

In fact, scientific research has shown that traditional performance reviews demotivates people and doesn’t improve employee performance. According to Gallup, only 29% of employees agree that the performance reviews they receive are fair, and just 26% agree that they are accurate.

There are now a range of major organisations like Deloitte, Microsoft and Netflix who have dropped their annual appraisal process and have moved to other ways of motivating and reviewing their employees’ performance.

People want feedback for performance and improvement, but they don’t want feedback that simply says how you should do better in these areas.
