A Clear Path to Success

Even before 2020 disrupted corporate work environments, few Human Resource leaders were satisfied with their performance management approaches. The 2019 Gartner Performance Management Benchmarking Survey revealed some startling statistics. First, 81% of HR leaders planned to make changes or overhaul their performance management program. Second, 82% acknowledged that performance management wasn’t effective at achieving its primary objective: motivate employees by aligning their personal goals with the company objectives. 

It’s time to make performance management the secret sauce that drives recruiting, retention, revenue and culture. Paycor can help you build an effective talent development program by shifting to more frequent coaching conversations that ensure employees are focused on the right priorities, receiving the direction they need to be productive.

Give Employees a Reason to Stay

When done right, performance reviews are a critical component to professional development and improving productivity and engagement across an organization. Yet, traditional performance management no longer offers the resources and support employees need. Infrequent conversations riddled with biases and information gaps aren’t inspiring employees to improve. With retention at an all-time high, top-performing companies must prioritize a talent development program that encourages more frequent coaching conversations to help increase engagement, create the right level of focus and deliver better business outcomes.

Paycor’s talent development software moves beyond the annual performance review by allowing you to create a culture built on continuous feedback. Our low-touch, robust solution automates the entire talent development process. With Paycor, HR leaders can better inform compensation, promotion and succession-planning decisions, as well as to drive employee performance.
