Continuous Performance Management is the modern practice of not only managing, but actually increasing, employee performance. It’s very different from the old-school, legacy performance management which applied the ineffective once-a-year performance review. The modern approach is ongoing and is conducted in real-time (i.e. weekly, with a 5-10 minute check-in). Another difference is that responsibility for performance is owned and managed by people managers, while being supported by HR. It is not run from a traditional HR system or owned exclusively by HR; nor is it done for the purpose of compliance. Instead, it is encouraged to optimize talent and increase performance over time. Today’s competitive, global business environment is no longer running on a once-a-year cycle — the pace of business is much more dynamic. Companies need to align their employees and drive stellar performance and results on a continuous basis and in a modern, agile way. Over 10% of Fortune 500 companies have already ended the annual review process and their managers are using the modern, agile Continuous Performance Management. Organizations of all sizes are now following suit.
Regular performance check-ins help managers be more effective and also ensures that employees are making progress towards what truly matters to the company:
Less than 12% of companies believe their existing performance management processes is “worth the time put into it” and half of them found it useless.
63% of employers say their managers spend 4 hours or less per employee on performance management each year.
Employees who do regular check-ins and receive regular feedback from managers are 20x more likely to be engaged at work.
