Paper-based appraisals encourage a ‘tick-box’ mentality

CEO of Actus, Lucinda Carney believes that using a paper-based system to manage your appraisal and performance management processes encourages a ‘tick box’ mentality. The message often being echoed is that performance appraisals and performance management simply do not work. However, Lucinda and the rest of the Actus team believe that this is down to the quality of what is taking place and is not a true reflection of the important role performance appraisals and performance management should have within the workplace.

The alternative, using online performance management software, encourages year-round conversations and facilitates a year-round performance management process. When you go online with performance management software, data is accessible to HR and they can draw far more value from it! For example, HR can look at their staffs development needs and be more responsive to them. Lucinda highlights how this not only adds value to the employer but also to the employee, as employees become more motivated and engaged within the workplace, and talent retention is far more likely! Lucinda further points out that using an online performance management software can help to signpost culture change.
