Do you wish you had more insight into your performance review process and how to make it more effective? In our new Summer 2013 Workforce Mood Tracker Report, Empowering Employees to Improve Performance, we asked employees what they thought of reviews and what would make them better. Their answers may surprise you.
Talent management is evolving, and HR professionals must adapt for the future. Competition remains fierce to acquire the best talent from the largest candidate pool in history, while the traditional performance review cycle is no longer sufficient for evaluating the functions and needs of your people. Executives must ensure that managers are not only able to find the right individual for the job, but also retain, engage, and prepare top performers for leadership roles in a proactive way.
Year-end performance reviews don’t reflect the feedback and development needs of modern workers. Continuous Performance Management starts with the foundational belief that employees want to perform well and they want to improve, grow and develop in their careers. Read this brief to learn the four steps of how to use continuous performance management for your business.
Deploying a performance management
system is a powerful catalyst for increasing
employee and organizational performance.
If not handled properly, however, organizations
risk creating unnecessary administrative work
which can diminish some of the benefits. A key
challenge is to balance the tension between
creating a fair and consistent evaluation
process across the organization and measuring
employee performance based on individual
needs. What best practices should you follow to
help strike the right balance? How have other
leading organizations designed effective review
forms and processes?
The Marcus Buckingham Company, an ADP Company, commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying StandOut. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of StandOut on their organizations.
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with this investment, Forrester interviewed several customers with experience using StandOut. StandOut is an integrated suite that pairs a technology platform with coaching to help organizations achieve their talent activation goals.
Prior to using StandOut, the interviewed organizations did not have a structured program to improve and measure employee engagement and performance. Organizations used annual surveys and annual performance reviews, and some even encouraged weekly check-ins, but there was no guidance on how to complete these tasks, and the data t
The annual performance review is in need of a technology-based update. In this global research study, learn how to transform the performance management process from an annual chore to a continuous value driver that better engages and retains employees.

Digital experiences on mobile connections suffer from performance issues, and impatient users compound the challenges that slower, intermittent mobile connections raise. Firms need to build a new discrete delivery tier to improve users’ perception of mobile performance and drive conversion and engagement. By dynamically adjusting to context, this new delivery tier can adaptively send the right assets, optimize the sequence, and modulate streaming rich media. this report outlines the delivery tier technology options that application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals must embrace.

Global DNS performance and availability are critical to user experience. According to Gartner, “DNS is mission-critical to all organizations that connect to the internet. DNS failure or poor performance leads to applications, data and content becoming unavailable, causing user frustration, lost sales and business reputation damage.” But many businesses still rely on a single, often in-house DNS solution that lacks global scale and resiliency.
This white paper reviews the business advantages of implementing a high availability DNS architecture using redundant DNS services. You will learn:
- The critical role DNS plays in the user experience.
- The risks of relying solely on a single DNS solution.
- The added performance and reliability benefits of a high availability DNS architecture with a redundant managed DNS service.
- Criteria for evaluating a managed DNS service provider.

Workforce analytics has become an essential business tool for leading companies that view workforce performance as the key to improving company results, according to a new global survey of business leaders by Harvard Business Review Analytics Services. Workforce analytics is a set of integrated capabilities (technologies, metrics, data, and processes) to measure and improve workforce performance. The goal is simple: put the right
people with the right skills in the right work, provide them with the necessary training and development opportunities, and engage and empower them to perform at their highest possible level.

Multi-tenancy is a key feature of Workday and enables multiple customers to share one physical instance of the Workday system in a highly secure environment. Multi-tenancy is enabled through the Workday Object Management Server (OMS). Workday OMS allows servers to host multiple customer tenants simultaneously and builds “security walls” between each of the tenants. Thanks to Workday OMS, there is no way for any worker in one tenant to access the information of another tenant.
Workday delivers its software using a continuous development model. Builds are rolled out weekly that contain new features, bug fixes, or performance improvements. Twice a year, Workday takes all the features put into preview and releases them to production for all customers. Workday customers are never landlocked on an old release, and all customers can utilize new features for the products they purchased as soon as they are live.
