Navigating hybrid performance management 

As an HR leader, it’s important to ask yourself where you're going, both in modern organizations and within a new world of work, and how you can avoid falling behind. This episode delves into the critical aspects of performance management in hybrid work environments to answer just that. Effective performance management systems, especially those adapted to a hybrid work model, are not one-size-fits-all — they understand and consider how individuals contribute to the overall team dynamic and use that knowledge to their advantage. To embrace Behson’s idea of a “whole-person workplace” is to embrace a cultural shift that values employees holistically. 

📺 Watch the full episode for insights on how to navigate the hybrid landscape, making flexibility, accountability, and trust core values to fuel performance success.
