Webinar Overview

Most people, whether employees or supervisors, hate annual performance appraisals. These reviews are widely criticized for being uncomfortable, time-consuming, and of dubious value.

The annual review’s biggest limitation is its emphasis on holding employees accountable for what they did last year, at the expense of focusing on improving performance now and in the future. To solve that problem, many organizations are moving to more frequent, development-focused conversations between managers and employees: Traditional performance appraisals have been abandoned by more than one-third of U.S. companies.

In his new HBR article “The Performance Management Revolution,” Wharton professor Peter Cappelli explained his research into performance management and discussed the way that the review and rating process is being restructured. 

On October 13, in a live, interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, Cappelli will describe the revolution in performance management, why it is occurring, and how leading organizations are transforming their performance management processes.

To discover the future of performance management, join one of the world’s leading HR thinkers, Peter Cappelli, and HBR on October 13.
