The Right Approach to Performance Management


Effectively managing your team’s performance will drive productivity, engagement, and bottom-line success. When done right, it aligns your workforce, boosts morale, and supports your organisational resiliency.  

The stats confirm why getting this right matters:  

  • Companies with effective performance management are 51% more likely to outperform competitors (Gallup) 
  • 79% of employees who quit cite a lack of appreciation (Achievers)  
  • Employment disputes cost NZ businesses over $1 billion annually (MBIE) 

Is it time to reframe performance management from just another annoying administrative task, into an opportunity to engage your team and boost productivity?  

In this expert-led webinar you’ll learn how to:  

  • Lead a team that excels through clear expectations, meaningful feedback and a supportive atmosphere.  
  • Transform this process from routine administration into a critical strategic initiative that lifts engagement and productivity.  
  • Manage what to do when things go wrong, with learnings from employment law cases.  
  • Approach difficult conversations with expert guidance and tactics.   

There will be plenty of time for Q&A and a tailored take-home resource with practical steps you can put in place immediately.
