The Pay for Performance Conundrum
Pay for Performance systems contribute to significant amounts of unconscious bias, continuing and exacerbating pay inequity and furthering widening the pay gap. Additionally, they demotivate employees on both ends of the perceived performance spectrum and allow front line leaders to avoid meaningful discussion with their team members on performance issues and development opportunities.
The vast majority of companies have pay and performance systems that are linked together. Most acknowledge they are inefficient at best and ineffective at worst, however, they don't see any viable alternatives. This session will provide solutions as well as an easy to follow, step by step guide to enabling participants to design and implement a solution for their organization.
