HR networking with panel discussions on the future of performance and remuneration


Networking Event

Pivot organised a panel discussion on “The Future of the connection between Performance and Remuneration management” at the HR networking session last week.

The event was held at Pivot Client Perpetual Limited’s office in Sydney.

The panellists engaged the audience in robust discussions on the significance of performance ratings in relation to the future of performance and remuneration management.


The a very brief summary of the conclusions of the discussion were:

  • A human centred design philosophy in performance management must be a considered one.
  • Prevalence of gig economy cannot be ignored when it comes to performance and remuneration management.
  • Moving away from prescriptive to fluid approach in performance management requires investing in leaders for enhanced quality of performance delivery
  • Perceived fairness and consistency must be addressed when there are gender pay discussions

The good stuff
