Fueling Performance: A Future-Focused Approach
Facilitated by Lynette Campbell-VP Org Dev & Learning and
Katie Mullin-VP Human Resources, Farm Credit Services of America
In the summer of 2016, Farm Credit Services of America launched a cross-functional team, Team Fuel. The team was charged with one goal: Create a holistic, effective new Performance Review Process while at the same time supporting our culture. Starting date: January 2017. Why change? We knew thousands of hours were being spent reviewing performance with little perceived impact on future performance. In fact, many employees were frustrated by ratings. And, the focus of the reviews were backward-looking instead of fueling future performance. Join Katie Mullin, VP of HR and Lynette Campbell, VP of Org Development & Learning as they share in detail the story of how the new process was designed, the key components of the new process, what the organization earned a year after implementing, and what's next!
Members will understand how one organization successfully transformed a conventional performance review to a simpler, more effective process. Learn about the successful actions taken to implement the process ad also the pitfalls. Topics covered will include the project journey, communications, timing, what the conversations involve, tools and what happened to our competency model, cultural considerations, and survey results. More importantly: we know that literally thousands of hours were saved last year utilizing this streamlined method. Did the organization notice that performance dropped in any way?
