Performance Management

Performance Management and Talent Development

Performance management and talent development both are critical to the continued success of your business.   When employees see how their work contributes to organizational achievements and have the opportunity for continued development, they’re more engaged and inspired in their work.

Performance improves when individuals do work that aligns to the business objectives and they do good work when they know what is expected, receive continuous feedback, and are provided with the resources needed to succeed.

Companies that don’t properly manage performance and develop their talent may not only end up losing their workers, they could also lose money.  According to a study by the Center for American Progress, losing an employee making $60,000 per year will cost an organization $12,000 to find and train a new worker.
