Many HR professionals are striving to transform traditional performance management systems and adapt them to today’s work environment. They’re moving away from a compliance-based approach, which makes the process seem like a chore, to improve attitudes and habits surrounding the process. They’re shortening cycles, placing more emphasis on teamwork, and removing rating systems. Others are using “performance motivation” instead of “performance management.” Performance motivation employs tactics that empower employees such as impact descriptions, development plans, and self-evaluations.
