How to Link Pay and Performance Management


How to Link Pay and Performance Management

Employee performance management has been undergoing a revolution over the past few years. Highly structured, year-end appraisals are being eliminated. Instead, business leaders are adopting a forward-looking, flexible mentoring and coaching approach. The “new and improved” method is designed to help companies navigate the accelerated pace of change all businesses are experiencing.

So, how is this revolution impacting compensation? What kind of pay strategies are being used with this new performance management approach? How are successful business leaders ensuring their compensation plans offer maximum flexibility without creating a need for constant reinvention?

In this webinar, we will answer all those questions and more. By attending, you will discover how a rewards plan can be both agile and enduring—and why that combination is essential in the hyper-change environment we are living in.


Learning Objectives:

  • The 3 business reasons companies are eliminating formal performance appraisals—and how they impact compensation.
  • Why a Total Rewards approach to building an employee value proposition is more important than ever.
