In a blog post on July 21, 2015, the Washington Post discussed Accenture will disband rankings and the once-a-year evaluation process starting in fiscal year 2016, which for Accenture begins this September. It will implement a more fluid system, in which employees receive timely feedback from their managers on an ongoing basis following assignments.

Accenture is one of a few elite firms moving in this direction. There is a strong research case to shift to a much more agile approach that focuses on timely and constructive feedback that lends itself to growth.

In a recent article by McKinsey & Company, global management consulting firm, on The Power of People Analytics discussed how it developed an approach to retention. Their analysis revealed that a lack of mentoring and coaching and of “affiliation” with people who have similar interests were actually top of list of key factors. Specifically, “flight risk” across the firm fell by 20 to 40 percent when coaching and mentoring were deemed satisfying.

Combining timely feedback with coaching and mentoring can create a powerful formula for developing highly skilled and engaged employees.

The blog series discusses how to design performance management systems, combining performance management with coaching and also mentoring.
