Overhauling career pathing and performance reviews
Rapidly growing branding agency found that a lot of team members lacked clarity on promotion- and compensation criteria.
The agency’s growth had outpaced their structure. The resulting confusion was beginning to impact culture. Employees were confused and lacked direction.
The company wanted to create a clear, easily understood framework that would align personal and business growth to individual career paths, helping both managers and employees better understand the direction of the company and the requirements for advancement. We developed a matrix with core growth areas, a performance review structure that could be universally implemented and a development goal tracker to keep managers and reports on the same page.
The updated process provided clarity for the organization while minimizing bureaucracy. Ownership reported that employees were very appreciative, and performance had improved in all departments.
