Listen to People Performance Radio Episode 50:
Jim Irvine, Manager of Talent Management for Nissan North America describes how Nissan is increasing workforce productivity during what is probably the largest downturn in the history of the automotive industry. Operating under extreme financial pressure, Nissan has developed highly innovative methods to build talent through engaging employees at both a rational and emotional level. By rethinking what performance management should be, Nissan has increased productivity without increasing talent management costs. Highlights include moving from a once a year performance management event to an integrated series of 6 separate performance dialogues, providing managers with feedback on the quality of their feedback, and engaging managers to view performance management as an enabling process and not an administrative constraint.
