Talent Compass Makes Assessing Your Workforce Easy - HighGround

Nearly eight in 10 executives feel that re-designing their company’s performance management program is a top priority, according to Bersin by Deloitte. As organizations move away from annual reviews, forced rankings and competency models, they need a better way to make decisions around compensation, responsibilities, mobility and leadership development.

BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN EVERYDAY PEFORMANCE MANAGEMENT AND DOWNSTREAM DECISIONS

Talent Compass reinvents the calibration process to create alignment between a company’s everyday performance management activities and downstream decisions. It guides managers through questions designed to eliminate unconscious bias around subjective competencies like attitude and critical thinking skills.

HOW IT WORKS

  • Each manager is prompted to assess their team’s performance using the Talent Compass questionnaire.
  • Managers answer several key questions about each of their direct report’s performance. The questions range in topic to advise on compensation changes, identify improved skill sets and uncover potential risks. Questions are simple and straightforward, such as “Is Sarah a flight risk?” and “Would Peter be difficult to replace?” Responses are based on a slider scale with a range from strongly agree to strongly disagree.
  • Talent Compass instantly segments the team members in a number of ways, including reward alignment and base pay.
  • The management team leverages the graphs and an action planning report to make informative downstream decisions.
