Driving business performance one individual at a time
Performance management is the combination of formal and informal processes and practices that drive employees towards actions, behaviors and outcomes, which collectively produce positive results for the organization.
It can be one of the most challenging and stressful aspects of the workplace for talent management teams and employees alike. As a result, organizations generally put a lot of effort into establishing a performance management system that delivers a positive and motivational experience for employees, with a focus on constantly moving forward.

what we offerOur services in employee performance management
Performance policy and cycle
Designing all the steps in the performance management cycle and determining the cycle duration, and calendar and frequency of activities. This includes identifying the eligibility of staff for the formal performance management cycle, and the responsibilities assigned to staff in relation to performing evaluations.
Establishing a system to identify objectives and competencies for every role. We cascade organizational goals into department objectives, which are then reflected in individual objectives, using tools such as balanced score cards. We ensure that competencies required for each role are aligned with the organizations competency model.
Evaluation and comparison
Developing an evaluation methodology to calculate points and assign ratings, and identify key performance indicators to measure progress and accomplishment. We also help with selecting a system to determine how employees perform relative to each other, using methods such as ranking, paired comparison and forced distribution.
