Perform Mgmt - Perfrom Mgmt

Work Effects has built a street-tested performance management system called PerformanceSUMTM.  This interactive, on-demand web-based platform is designed to accommodate global users with populations between 5 and 50,000 participants.

With the flexibility to meet the needs of most organizations, PerformanceSUM has a field-tested library of over 65 competencies that have been arranged into 11 super-factor groups. These competencies can be customized to meet the unique needs of any organization and aligned with an organization’s goals.

There are three implementation phases that we follow when providing a PerformanceSUM solution:

    Metrics. In collaboration with a designated steering committee, we ask the important questions that determine a successful implementation: What kind of goals will be set? What kind of resources will be available for individuals to develop their goals? What rating system will be used?

    Process Design. After the steering committee has completed its task and to assure a successful development process, Work Effects recommends using a process called MaxMixTM.  This refers to designating a process design group containing segments from across the organization (MAXimum MIXture of people).  This group may be as small as 20 or as large as 200 and would be responsible for indentifying all of the rules regarding the entire performance management cycle.

    System Configuration & Administration. Once the specifications and rules have been outlined by the process design group, the Work Effects IT department will implement your organization’s performance management goals as reflected in the new system.  Since PerformanceSUM is modular and reflective upon what each client requires, Work Effects can include a number of different modules including goal setting, mid-year reviews, appraisals, compliance reports, 360s and succession management among others.

Work Effects Conflict LensTM
Also, an area that causes a lot of headaches within an organization is conflict. Work Effects created Conflict Lens, which teaches how to resolve conflict and promote trust between individuals and within an organization. By examining over 1,600 different conflict situations, Work Effects is able to show organizations how to effectively resolve conflict, resulting in better overall performance.
