Thank you for attending the CIPD Performance Management Conference and Workshop on 5-6 December 2019 at The Hallam Conference Centre, London.

The CIPD Performance Management Conference and Workshop will offer valuable and thought-provoking discussions to enable you to align your organisational mission with the work of your employees. By making your vision, mission and values relevant to your staff through effective and meaningful conversation, you will provide opportunities for growth both for individual employees and your organisation as a whole.

At the very core of performance management are the processes of setting standards, creating action plans and communicating meaningfully to drive a high-performance culture.
