Webinar - Developing Effective Performance Reviews for a Hybrid Workforce

When it comes to providing job security and career growth, a structured  performance review process can ease employees’ concerns and give them a clearer vision of their future within the company. However, HiBob’s latest research reveals that only 49% of HR professionals say their organisation has a formal review process in place. Adding to the complexity is measuring the performance of hybrid/remote employees.

Listen in as we talk with Elise Ward, Caley Zingerle & Charlotte Stofberg about how having rules and reviews can actually be a good thing.

Led by Vice President (APJ) at HiBob, Damien Andreasen, our expert panel will discuss the most effective ways to implement performance reviews.

We discuss –

  • How can you gauge an employee’s performance and productivity when you don’t see them in-person?
  • How can you run seamless 360-degree review cycles and deliver actionable feedback to dispersed teams?
  • How can you  prepare managers for performance reviews with their teams?
  • How can you optimise the performance process by setting clear, attainable goals for employees as part of their growth plan?

Webinar - Looking to the Future - Business Resilience and 2024 Priorities

HiBob’s new research, Growing Pains, discovered that mid-sized Australian companies are showing immense resilience despite the economic downturn, with two in five currently looking to grow headcount. It also revealed that HR’s top three priorities for next year are: 

  • Increasing employee retention
  • Attracting and hiring great talent
  • Improving employee engagement and wellbeing.

Join us and our panel of talent leaders, Rimonda Ohlsson, Nicole Karagiannis & Jamie Finnegan, as we take a moment to slow down, reflect and prepare for 2024.

Led by Vice President (APJ) at HiBob, Damien Andreasen, join us as we dive into what the current climate actually means for the next year in both business and HR.
