the accord performance model


The annual performance review has had its day. But do informal weekly check-ins and constant online surveys serve employees or employers any better?

The Accord is a value exchange model which establishes the framework to build constructive and positive workplace relationships. 

Managers are given the tools to set out the clear expectations they have of employees in terms of performance, behaviors and attitudes.

The employee is then given the opportunity to solicit what they need in return to deliver on those expectations. 

Once agreement is reached, it becomes their Accord. 

Regular check-ins can then be focused on the Accord to ensure that the commitments and expectations on both sides are being met.
