Microsoft

Powered by Mind Gym, Microsoft put a halt to rating and ranking systems alike, to redefine performance management. The results? A high collaborative team.

Challenge:

After realizing its performance management efforts were no longer working, Microsoft decided it was time for a change. And to get there, they’d need to undergo a radical transformation.

Solution:

Ratings, rankings, and the competitive culture were retired and replaced with collaboration and equipping managers to have improved performance conversations.

Workouts ranging from Managing for impact and Giving actionable feedback were offered to 10,000 managers in two different languages

Results:

After the program, 67% said they feel positive about the new performance management program with 70% saying there has been a positive impact on collaboration.
