Research shows that employees are more engaged, and perform better when they understand and leverage their strengths. In this HCI Keynote video, Lisa Gold, Career Services Manager at The MITRE Corporation, details the four-pronged approach that The MITRE Corporation took to innovate their approach to performance management.
- Involve not just the direct manager of the employee in your performance management process, but also the people from their projects who know their work the best.
- Enable career ownership in your employees with a growth-based approach.
- Consider different learning styles when designing a virtual career portal; produce content in different formats ranging from checklists, to detailed guides, to online learning modules and video.
- Ditch the “career ladder” model for something that allows for horizontal movement and empowers employees to make their own career decisions.
