Join us on zoom, link to be provided after registration.
Join us to continue our discussion from the Monday, 18 October 2021 PNODN session and to dialogue about what opportunities are ahead of us as OD practitioners and academics. We are living in unprecedented times, our organizations and society are unfrozen, and the opportunity for significant change on the individual, pair, group, and systems levels has never been more present. This is moment for OD! So the BIG Questions are: What is our role? Will we step up? What is our Practice Theory as OD practitioners in working with systems that are unfrozen?
Fred Miller and Judith Katz will facilitate a discussion of the above building on an OD Gathering Process where 300 people thought together: "What world do we want to create together? What is the future of OD in that world?" From the OD Gathering, there emerged statements about creating common ground related to: the Vision, Essence, Values of OD and other areas.

As more companies move to a hybrid work model, it is challenging the traditional annual performance evaluation process. Hybrid work creates a potential disconnect between managers and remote employees, because a manager cannot see all the day-to-day work that remote employees do. There can be multiple conscious and unconscious biases that can impact the evaluations, such as proximity bias, unknowingly favoring in-office employees in evaluations simply because they are more visible. This may cause some remote employees to be at a disadvantage in the annual evaluation process.
Implementing truly equitable evaluations requires intentional planning, where both managers and employees identify critical behaviors that impact business outcomes and include feedback from multiple data sources within the workstream.
Equitable evaluations focus on outcomes, increase visibility, link behavior to results, and enable all levels to participate in the feedback cycle. Equitable evaluations focus on what work is done, rather than where it is done. This promotes equity between remote employees and in-office employees. Enabling input from all levels in the evaluation process reduces bias, produces more equitable evaluations data, builds trust, increases engagement, which improves retention.
