Performance management

Data-driven performance management is a modern approach to achieving excellence in any business.

Performance management is in the middle of a data revolution. Quarterly reviews and other traditional tools have been replaced by real-time analytics that can drive instant positive reinforcement. In today’s fast-moving market, we can help organisations develop the tools and skillsets necessary to support informed decision making.


Our approach

In business, effective performance management can make all the difference when it comes to meeting strategic objectives. With better skill sets and resources at your disposal, not only will your company be more agile and resilient, it will also stand a stronger chance of reaching its objectives.

At Forvis Mazars, we fully support the move to data-driven performance management. We also welcome the move away from harsh performance management and stack ranking that makes staff compete with each other. Today’s organisations need internal co-operation, not competition, to thrive amid ever-tougher competition.

Our focus is on making performance management work for you. The new tools available for performance management bring little advantage unless they align with business strategy. Our teams of experts in strategy and HR can ensure this alignment as well as bring in legal expertise to help with implementation issues such as compliance with employment legislation and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

For more complex problems, our specialist team in data analytics can ‘join the dots’ by processing large quantities of information drawn from multiple parts of the organisation. Even complex data sets can be turned into simple visuals for an instant assessment of performance.
