Peoples State Bank opened its doors for the first time in 1962 to serve the financial needs of west side Wausau business owners, their employees, and their families. Today, with many locations throughout Wisconsin, we remain dedicated to serving our customers and investing in our communities through service built on trusted relationships.
Number Of Employees
Peoples State Bank was equipped with performance management processes in place before partnering with WorkDove. However, these processes were paper-driven, and the onus fell to managers to facilitate performance management and hold employees accountable. However, accountability and completion of performance reviews, for example, needed to be reliably monitored. Peoples executives tracked strategic initiatives (synonymous with organizational goals) and communicated to all employees through various channels. Still, there needed to be a simple, digital tool for employees to track their own goals or see how they contributed to the accomplishment of the initiatives. Similarly, one-on-ones between managers and employees were highly encouraged to occur at least once per month, but no tangible accountability measures were solidified. Paper performance reviews were completed annually and were aligned to performance objectives and behavioral competencies, including a rating system and space for comments, and managers and employees would meet together to discuss at length. The greatest need for Peoples was not the introduction of performance and talent management practices but rather a proven structure and efficient framework that bolstered good practices already in place and promoted organization-wide accountability. “We weren’t necessarily trying to solve a problem but to optimize what we already had,” shared the Vice President / Human Resources Director Tina Seidl.
