#WomenAskWhy: Money Matters – Performance Reviews
A Critical Conversation: Thursday 25th August 2016 6:00pm @ The Seamstress
Performance is an ongoing activity, whether you are an employee, an employer or self-employed. Businesses need to transform to stay relevant—both for their workers and in the marketplace. For those of you who face the annual performance review with your company, matters of compensation increase, promotion or moving to a new role, the way you want to be recognised, the way you want to be measured – all impact on the great outcomes you desire.
This conversation with Amie Wallis, Head of People, National Australia Bank, will address the latest processes and approaches to performance management and evaluation.
Some experiences can be extraordinarily conflicting, confusing and difficult to evaluate. Here is the opportunity to learn, share and discuss what are some keys to preparing self-evaluation for your performance regardless of your role or status. Performance evaluation is an opportunity to really talk and think about your goals, your future, and also the future and state of the company itself. Taking a big picture perspective and examining your role, the components of your company as parts and as a whole and how you can demonstrate your ‘add value’ and contribute a different perspective to the conversation.
This event will feature Equal Pay Day (8th September) that highlights the gender pay gap, which is the difference between women’s and men’s average weekly full-time equivalent earnings. The gap is currently 17.9% and has hovered between 15% and 19% for the past two decades.
In a Stamford University study, unconscious gender bias was evident in evaluations that conveyed both praise and criticism, feedback to men was full of granular detail and “actionable” advice. Feedback to women was blanketed in stereotypes and uselessly vague. This indistinct feedback makes it harder for women to improve where they’re weakest or to get promoted based on strong work they’ve done or receive deserved increased compensation.
