General Sessions

Riding the Performance Management Roller Coaster 

Moderator: Anna Tavis

Panelists: Jeffrey W. Orlando, Chief Learning Officer, Leader Development & Performance, Deloitte, Deborah Becker, SPHR, senior HR Director for Global Compensation, Eli Lilly, Jennifer Beihl, GE

About This Session: There has been no shortage of media attention given to a few major brand companies dropping their performance ratings and shifting their annual performance appraisal process to more frequent, feedback-rich and manager centered format. Research and media are hardly able to keep up with that trend.  In reality, there are more questions remaining than there are answers to the escalating challenges. One thing is certain, there is a renewed scrutiny in organizations of the validity of their existing performance management process and how it needs to change to help motivate employees and drive better productivity and engagement. This panel will offer a “naked eye,” account of the journey companies such as GE, Deloitte, Eli Lilly have taken to renew their performance management approaches.
