Transforming Performance – Abandoning Performance Reviews and Ratings and Focusing on What Really Matters to Employees

People Content Area

Breaking old habits isn't easy. But when a system isn’t working, it’s time for a change. Alere’s approach to improving performance meant transformational change across the company. Listen to Maureen Whatley, the company's global head of talent management and talent acquisition, as she explains how Alere abandoned its performance management process and ditched the rating scale, for a better practice focused on engaging employees to do their best performance.

Learning Objectives:
How to avoid the pitfalls when reinventing a performance system.
How to measure success in a system without ratings.
How to create an engaging experience for your employees.

Speaker: Maureen Whatley, Vice President, Global Talent Management & Acquisition, Alere
