A Modern Approach to Talent

After years of talk about the need for a shift in Performance Reviews, it’s here. We see it with our clients: from a focus on evaluation to forward-thinking discussions. Ratings are still there, but they are not the bottom line.   But there’s something that has been bothering us here at bob for a while: Calibration, a key process that actually decides who gets what (raise, bonus, training etc.) hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves.   Companies either schedule clandestine talent review meetings where managers meet to rate employees or…

New in bob: Surveys

We are in the midst of huge talent crisis. Every day we meet businesses that tell us about the exponential growth they are seeing in staff churn rates and the subsequent cost, culture and productivity implications of that to their business.   Then, when the ranting stops, the questions flow: “Why are people leaving?” “What do or don’t they like about the company?”, and most importantly: “How can I get to grips with this problem before it’s too late?”.   Knowledge is power The start point of ‘getting to grips’…

New in bob: Little things that make a big difference

You've probably heard of decision fatigue. If you haven't, it's the idea that we only have mental capacity to make so many decisions in the day - which is why many high-performing individuals try to strip out unnecessary decisions from their day.

New in bob: Cycle-to-Work

I’m 24 and still don’t have a driver's license. I grew up in a walkable city, and make sure that wherever I live, the majority of the time I can walk or bike. A 40 minute walk to work is the perfect amount of time for me to catch up on podcasts and listen to some tunes before I start my day at the office (not to mention that it’s my main form of exercise).   Don't ignore pedal power I was speaking with a friend about how I walk…
