Key Takeaways:

  • Introducing a new performance management process is a unique opportunity to revisit your core values as an organization and evaluate where you are heading.
  • Making the process more streamlined and easier to use throughout the year makes for an overwhelmingly positive annual review experience.
  • With structured feedback and recognition, teams can enjoy more engagement and alignment with organizational core values.


The Challenge

Weston Consulting desired to revisit its core values, improve overall alignment within the company, and better recruit and retain new talent. Before partnering with WorkDove, their performance management process was paper-based and, therefore not easily stored. Weston Consulting dealt with the typical challenge of uploading paper forms to their company server, resulting in a very difficult and painstaking review lookup and referencing process. “Out of sight, out of mind” also led to an increased challenge to accomplishing goals. Additionally, as with most consulting organizations, Weston Consulting works largely in teams on various projects. This requires a higher frequency level and additional feedback and recognition sources. “We have grown immensely over the last few years and needed to find a platform that allowed us to stay accountable to our staff by streamlining our performance review and feedback process and realigning employees with our core values. Thus, we needed to create a culture that fostered development, engagement, and growth, increasing performance and retention,” explained Ashley Mannello.
