This Executive Insight Video is the first in a series of three interviews with Ellie Gates, Director of Global Management Effectiveness & Performance for Adobe Systems. In it, she explains the key elements of their “Check-in” framework for performance management and shares how this simplified, high-frequency approach has increased engagement scores and reduced turnover by 40% within the first quarter since its implementation.
Key Takeaways Include:
- Adobe uses Check-in as a “framework” not a formal process because managers and employees are best positioned to decide the frequency and format of performance conversations
- Feedback is so important at Adobe that employees and managers are enabled to give feedback to anyone in the organization (even the CEO)
- A discussion of how Adobe has de-coupled performance conversations from compensation and is now training managers to give increases and bonuses based on their own assessment of employees’ value and current trends in the labor market
