When Dentsu Aegis Network started discussions with SilkRoad about their overall HR strategy, challenges and goals, they embarked on quite a successful journey. Since then, Dentsu Aegis Network has implemented SilkRoad Performance, Learning and Onboarding across their Australian and New Zealand locations to over 1000 employees and 25 brands.
- De-centralized performance management
- Differing needs from 25 separate brands
- Negative attitude towards performance management
Traditionally each of the 25 brands ran their own performance processes independently with their own forms, schedules and outcomes. As the company grew they saw the need for a centralised system in order to increase the overall view of their company talent and to streamline the performance process to take the administrative burden away from each brand and pull it into one easy to use system that took care of the process side of performance development.
Due to the inconsistencies across the company, it was felt that the employees were not getting the required support in their careers. There were not only differences on how the performance appraisals were delivered but also what happened next. It was important to Dentsu Aegis Network to start to create awareness of the process and what it can mean to the employee should they wholly participate.
Dentsu Aegis Network had experienced difficulty in implementing systems in the past and had struggled to achieve the required employee engagement from other systems. With this in mind they needed an easy to use platform that employees were able to recognize what was in it for them and what the outcome would be should they invest their time in the solution.
