Performance Management and the impact of AI Analytics: A new case of ‘Big Brother’, or a tool for greater equality at the workplace?



In this digital age of Industry 4.0, organizations are discovering new ways to grasp the opportunities offered by the data revolution to gain competitive advantage. In the area of performance management, new tools and systems are also being introduced to gather data to more accurately measure employee’s and organisational performance. The session has two primary purposes. Firstly to inform participants on what AI is and secondly, the impact of AI in the area of Performance Management. Within the challenges faced by organisation in taking on the AI challenge to ensure greater objectivity and equality in the reward systems of companies, ethical questions may also be raised as illustrated by the case of Barclays bank’s computer monitoring system. Where Barclays has been accused of “dystopian Big Brother” employment practices after it admitted running a staff monitoring scheme that uses tracking software to log how long employees spent at their desks and send warnings if they took extended breaks (The Guardian, Feb 20, 2020). Is this the future we envisage?

The purpose of the webinar is to explore, share and update our understanding of performance measurement and management in an environment of artificial intelligence. We invite attendees from both academics and practitioners. The event will take place under the aegis of the BAM Performance Management Special Interest Group. It will include three keynote address from leading practitioner scholars, followed with questions and answers session to wrap up.



This event will take place on Wednesday, 15 July 2020, between 11:00am and 1:00pm London time
