Only a quarter of organisations involve HR or personnel professionals in
performance management, new research reveals.
A study of 49 organisations by IRS Employment Review shows just 27 per cent
allow HR to have any input in the goal-setting process, despite playing a
central role in many areas of performance management – from training and
development to appraisals and employee communications.
Chief executives or board-level directors are relied upon instead. They are
involved in the performance management process for 80 per cent of the
responding organisations, while 78 per cent allow senior and line managers to
help determine key objectives.
The research also shows the majority of respondents see performance
management as a very important function, although less than half have a clear
management strategy, and only a third claim to have a performance culture. www.irsemploymentreview.com
