How it works

Key elements to emerging performance management are the group comparison and alignment of employee goals and performance evaluations. The essence of these practices is to use a broader group of experts to assess the difficulty of achieving goals and the subsequent performance of each individual employee. With this, a more objective and consistent assessment can be achieved, with managers applying similar standards in evaluating both the difficulty of goals and the ultimate level of achievement of goals and performance standards for similar jobs.
