#1 Global HR services leader
Randstad Groep

Who is Randstad Groep?


Great Conversations replaces the traditional system, which is unable to deliver optimal results. Frequent good conversation replaces the outdated annual performance review in which a year of accumulated feedback is discussed. The Great Conversation allows much more space not only for feedback, but also for feedforward: development-oriented feedback relating to future opportunities. This contributes to achieving results.

WHY did they do it?

“58% of executives interviewed believe that their current performance management approach drives neither employee engagement nor performance.”
“Once-a-year goals are not enough for a real-time world. And conversations about year-end ratings are less valuable than conversations conducted about performance while it’s actually happening.”
“We found that creating the ratings consumed close to two million hours a year.” “Ratings reveal more about the rater than the ratee.”
“Only 4% of HR leaders feel that they are effective at accurately assessing employee performance.”
