Burlington, MA (PRWEB) October 27, 2004
IHRIM and HR.com, two leading providers of HR management and technology information have scheduled ÂUsing Your Employee Performance Management (EPM) Solution as a Strategic Tool, Â a webinar to be held on November 9, 2004 at 1:00 p.m. EDT. From the comfort of home or office, attendees can hear Jacqueline Kuhn, manager of HR systems for Sears Roebuck & Co. and Aileen MacMillan, research analyst with HR.com explain how to increase employee engagement, alignment and improve productivity using an EPM solution.
Employee performance management solutions were created, not just to automate processes, but to provide significant gains in efficiency and focus Â contributing positively to the bottom line.
Depending upon the Âstage of readinessÂ of an organization, varying levels of effort will be required to move towards a Âperformance culture.Â Learn about the steps to take to make a successful transition.
In this webinar, youÂll learn how Sears Roebuck and Co, a retailer with operations in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and 220,000 associates in over 3,000 locations implemented and utilizes their employee performance management system. While performance management at Sears is something that occurs each day, a formal review is conducted for all associates once a year and recorded as their annual performance review. This process is tied to the calculating of merit and incentive payments, as well as the Talent Management Process in which managers assess their staffsÂ readiness to take on new assignments.
The two experienced presenters will specifically cover how to:
Â· Use technical solutions to improve consistency of your performance management processes,
Â· Implement change management Â linking individual goals to organizational objectives,
Â· Making a pay-for-performance system work, and
Â· Return on investment.
