March GCHRA HR Roundtable - 3/1/16

There is an on-going debate about whether to conduct performance reviews or not. This is a long held practice in organizations, but the movement to eliminate them completely is growing across all industries. There is also a question as to if performance reviews are truly about developing others. Full disclosure – We don’t conduct performance reviews at my company at any level and we’re doing fine !!

So, we are going to take this topic on in March – “Performance Reviews: Yes, No or Maybe”

People have fairly strong feelings about this topic because it seems to come up every month indirectly, so we decided to get right to it. Join me on  Tuesday, 3/1/16 from 8:00am to 9:00am at Scarlet Oaks. (directions below) to make sure your voice is heard.

Consider this posting as my attempt to get your feedback on your performance, and let’s have you respond to see if you’re truly “engaged” or not !!

Please RSVP by e-mailing me at: to let me know if you can make this month’s forum. I hope you can !!

Thanks – Steve


Instructions for the HR Roundtable at Scarlet Oaks:

  • The HR Roundtable is open to one and all !!  The meeting has an HR/Business focus each month and we get together to discuss that topic as well as network.  So, if you’re in HR, are a small business owner, are a resource partner who works with HR folks, a professional in transition, etc. – you are welcome to attend the Roundtable !!
  • If you’re someone in transition, feel free to bring five (5) copies of the resume to the Roundtable to display. Make sure they’re stapled and not loose. You only need to bring five. It will be enough to help you network.
  • Place your resumes in the Job Role category that best fits your background. Please don’t spread them over several categories. People will find you and help you look. You can trust me on that.
  • The “dress” for the Roundtable is business casual. We’re not very formal and you’ll be fine however you dress. It’s more important to have you come and attend the forum !!
  • You can bring business cards, but don’t immediately pass them out when you get to the Roundtable. Get to know people first and see if they’d like a card. It doesn’t need to be your introduction.
  • Please come in and sign in for the Roundtable.  Note that if you go to any other Great Oaks door, you’ll be asked to have a picture ID and you will receive a Visitors badge as part of their security system.
  • Chances are I’ll be outside to greet you and welcome you to the Roundtable so you can find the right door to come and join the forum !!
