In contrast to traditional feedback assessments, feedforward assessments focus on how a situation can be improved. Feedforward is empowering and eye-opening, not judgmental, and it helps strengthen bonds between coworkers. In this episode of PCTY Talks, author, trainer, and keynote speaker Jason Lauritsen and host Shari Simpson discuss feedforward vs. feedback approaches. They explore the positive impact of divorcing compensation from performance and the difference between employee experience, employee engagement, and performance management.
