At Catalysis, we develop integrated performance management systems tailored to our client’s needs. Our aim is to facilitate and optimize a performance- oriented work culture that focuses on building strong, visible linkages between goal and performance of the business, the team and the individual employee. Our focus is to emphasize on both the ‘’What’’ but also the ‘’How’’ of performance. The imperative of looking at the end results through the lens of organization core values.
We collaborate with the client on the content, methodology and administration of the system to ensure that it is perceived as a fair, transparent and meaningful process to all stakeholders. We help our clients design a process that is
- Value based and Not Complex
- Easy to implement and Not Time Consuming
- Linked to organization context and Not Unrealistic
Our method clearly establishes performance expectations for employees, linked to overall organizational objectives and priorities. This covers areas like creating the appraisal forms, defining targets and competencies, choosing rating schemes and describing performance levels. We work closely with the client to ensure that the design of the process is cohesive and level appropriate across the organization.
We link performance parameters with metrics that measures sustainable growth. For example, focus and achievement of only bottom line targets alongside a high employee turnover will lead to be a short- term gain in long run, unless both parameters are tracked and measured. We facilitate the translation of the business plans to action steps via goal setting workshops. Our role further includes cascading the goals and metrics to the workforce to ensure that each employee understands their role in achieving the organizations goals.
In addition, our focus is on hand-holding the client through the entire implementation of the process. This includes
- Manage employee communication
- Assist moderation and normalization process
- Workshops with key stakeholders on their roles and responsibilities
- Workshops on building high performance culture; Feedback and Feedforward Skills
We offer supplementary services to integrate the performance management system with other HR processes in the organization. We build capability in the HR team to continue to ensure effective performance management. In conjunction, we design talent management programs for high potentials, as well as succession planning exercises. We further extend support to our clients for linking performance to rewards, in the form of variable pay plans, incentive schemes, increment policy, promotion policy etc.
