Performance to the People — Democratizing Performance Management
Patrick Kelly, Program Manager Talent and Performance Management, Patagonia
Flip and reserve the hierarchical, top-down Performance Management of the past. Patagonia’s “Regenerative Performance” process is more dynamic, democratized, and feeds leaders with more data, to make better Talent decisions around development and rewards. Learn how Patagonia has applied its value of breaking from convention to create a lighter, more agile, forward-looking approach to Performance—with more frequent Check-Ins, Crowdsourced Feedback, Public Recognition, and transparent, Quarterly Stretch Goals. This session will focus on the practical aspects of this “agile” approach: what are the tools, how were they implemented, and what are their impacts?
• Learn how Patagonia created a Performance culture that thrives on an unconventional approach, transparency, and collaboration.
• Help employees lead their own Performance, so Managers can wear less of the “Judge” hat and more of a “Coach” hat.
• Learn how a democratized approach to Performance Management helps drive employees to feel better aligned with their Manager and Company priorities, and accomplish more throughout the year.
• Learn how use of these “Regenerative” tools predict higher contributions and more rewards.
