Sharing our knowledge and expertise

At 10Eighty, we think employers need to take a more employee-orientated perspective in terms of performance appraisals. The annual tick-box exercise tends to be counterproductive and the best employees want something more personal and tailored to their role and aspirations.

The connected conversation centres on what is really important to people, what motivates them. Values taken in conjunction with an overview of employee strengths provide the basis for reviewing both performance and career trajectory that builds on the reality of their working life. A Connected Conversation is the way to achieve improved performance without resorting to outdated and ineffective formal appraisals or annual reviews.

Regular feedback is important to employees – younger members of the team prefer to work this way and workers on flexible contracts need the input and opportunity to engage with leadership. Employees in some roles will want and need feedback more often than others and managers will soon come to arrangements with each team member as to what works best in each instance.

The connected conversation allows managers to acknowledge where staff are performing well, where they can improve and provide guidance as to how they might build their skills and progress within the organisation.
