WorldatWork Research Report: Performance Management and Rewards

A Report by WorldatWork and Globoforce


This report summarizes how many organizations are evaluating the design and effectiveness of their performance management programs and are assessing the ripple effects of any changes on Recognition Programs. This June 2017 survey, conducted by WorldatWork with underwriting support from Globoforce, was intended to identify current performance management practices. It also gathered data on how organizations are rewarding for performance in context of how performance management may be changing in their organization.

Survey Results

  • Differentiating rewards is the key goal of performance management programs; however, there is little differentiation of awards other than for base pay and cash bonuses.
  • Despite murmurings in the field, most organizations continue to use formal performance appraisals and ratings and have no plans to drop them in the future.
