This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve recorded live from the OC Tanner Influence Greatness Conference in Park City, Utah and learned how HH Hunt, a 2,000 employee organization is evolving their performance management practices. On the show, Keri Smith of HH Hunt shared their journey from the classic, annual, highly structured, formal, ratings-based, and pretty much hated annual performance review processes, to a newer approach centered around the 1-1 relationship between a manager and an employee.

She discussed how the organization prepared to change their performance management practices, how they have set up a framework and structure for managers to lead impactful and engaging conversations with their employees, and how these new methods have served to solidify and strengthen both organizational culture and individual performance.

Joshua shared how the newly released capabilities in the OC Tanner Culture Cloud have supported Keri and HH Hunt in these initiatives and how they are working with all kinds of organizations to enable and empower culture-centered change. You can learn more and sign up for a free trial of these new capabilities at www.octanner.com.

This was an interesting show and great look at ‘life after performance reviews.’

Thanks to Keri and Joshua for joining us and thanks to OC Tanner for inviting the HR Happy Hour Show to the event.
