The Problem

Determining the need

A 2015 Employee Engagement survey indicated only 29% of employees felt the existing performance management system enabled contribution to organisational success. The survey indicated a strong desire to include regular, authentic and personalised conversations focusing on the employee’s goals, development, and career.

“There is room for improvement in understanding individual's capabilities vs engagement. Top-down communication is very poor and opportunities to raise issues on development is limited and at times no actions taken or feedback given”

Replacing the need for conventional reviews

Annual reviews are a thing of the past - too formal and uninspiring. WSP|Parsons Brinckerhoff has developed a new people development program, Thrive, with the specific purpose of supporting managers and employees to have regular and authentic performance and development conversations.
