How Should We Collaborate in a Hybrid World?

Roundtable: Succession Planning in a Hybrid World: Increased Connections or Opportunities for Bias?

Russ McCall, Sr Principal, Advisory, Gartner

A hybrid work environment presents both new challenges and new opportunities for succession planning and management processes.

Ask the Expert: How Should I Redesign My Performance Management Processes to Mitigate Biases?

Brent Cassell, VP, Advisory, Gartner

64% of leaders believe that in-office employees are higher performers, but Gartner research indicates that remote employees are 1.7x more likely to be high performers than their onsite peers. While many organizations seek to close this gap by boosting awareness, perhaps through unconscious bias training, this has no significant impact on bias in performance management. Join this highly interactive session where you can ask a Gartner expert your most pressing questions for redesigning performance management processes (from goal setting to calibration) to address the pervasive risk of unchecked biases.
