Performance Management

The wrong performance management system can trigger a ‘teacher-student’ mentality that inspires dread in both managers and the employees who are subjected to it.  Grade-based performance reviews with little or no meaningful dialogue can stifle innovation and undercut relationships between managers and staff.

Is there a better approach? Meet QTI Consulting.  

The QTI approach to performance management favors open communication and flexibility. We tailor performance appraisal forms to measure the behaviors and results that support your business goals and desired culture.   

Our approach and experience comes from working with many different organizations. We’ve seen it all, and we can help you avoid the well-known pitfalls of traditional performance appraisals.  

We help design plans that involve online, 360-degree assessments, self-assessments and creative ways to encourage meaningful discussions of individual and organizational performance. We can also help to link your performance management process  to incentives and base compensation .   

We get it. The QTI Group understands the full spectrum of opinion on performance appraisal from “don’t do it” to "rank order and fire the bottom 20 percent".  Rather than advocate for either end of that spectrum, we work with you to sort through the arguments and select the methods that work best in your environment. 

How do you get to the top?

Give your people enough rope to…succeed.

Give us a call. We love to see our clients succeed.
