A Progressive Perspective on Performance Management
Your Firm is searching for solutions to preserve its competitive position and profitability. Should you step up your employee performance management program? How would your Firm be stronger with a new performance management solution in place?
These are great and fair questions for the leaders of our law firms to ask. However, two of the most important questions that are frequently overlooked include:
- What problem(s) are we actually trying to solve with performance management?
- What new problems might we create with an ill-designed and outdated performance management program?
With year 2020 upon us, the competitive dynamics in the legal marketplace continue to change rapidly. Profit margins are under pressure, and at the same time Firms are being challenged with attracting and retaining the younger generations who bring a different perspective toward traditional legal work. This issue is further compounded by most Firm’s desires to foster more diverse and inclusive workplaces. Altogether, Firms are faced with the dilemma of stepping up the performance expectations of employees, while simultaneously appealing to a broader demographic set than they have before.
Join us for a 1 hour session on September 12 when Scott Bunker, Senior Partner of eemerge Consulting and Analytics will challenge our thinking about new effective approaches to performance management, and how we can approach attraction and retention of the best talent more progressively.
