Report 2023

The current state of performance management and the emerging trends for 2023.

We've surveyed over 1,350 HR directors, managers and employees across a range of sectors in the UK and USA, to provide us with multiple viewpoints on performance management. 


As we tackle the challenges presented at the start of 2023, we do so with a workforce that is increasingly burnt out, and with managers who are increasingly struggling to help.

In a world where the rules of engagement have changed and developing and nurturing your people holds the key to success, building and finding a performance culture seems for many as elusive as it's ever been. And it's never been so important. 



Key Findings

2023 - The year of the 'perfect' (or not-so-perfect) storm

With businesses looking to protect their bottom line, we are seeing a laser focus on performance. 40% of HR Directors say their main performance management priority is to enhance perfromance, compared to just 31% in 2022.
