Should You be Scrapping Annual Performance Reviews? - Press Release

Armstrong on Reinventing Performance Management (9780749478117)16th December 2016 - Armstrong on Reinventing Performance Management: Building a culture of continuous improvement

Should you be scrapping annual performance reviews?

Overly bureaucratic and ineffective performance management processes are keeping companies from building cultures of continuous improvement. The focus of these reviews tends to be on the past – on what has or hasn’t been achieved – and on forced rankings linked to pay decisions.

Available today, Armstrong on Reinventing Performance Management presents a holistic approach to performance management, drawing on author Michael Armstrong's vast experience to put the focus on actionable feedback and growth. The book will help HR professionals and managers improve talent management, employee engagement and business results.

 Armstrong on Reinventing Performance Management provides case studies on how this approach to building performance has been effective in organizations including Deloitte, Gap, Expedia and Google. Filled with practical advice, including how to deal with underperformers, it demonstrates how to get line managers' support for the process focusing on actionable feedback and growth.
