Vancouver, B.C. - Brookfield LePage Johnson Controls (BLJC) today announced a new $250,000 partnership with TELUS Sourcing Solutions (TSSI) to introduce automated performance management technology allowing BLJC’s 1,500 team members and their managers to enter and measure performance and development against clear annual goals.
Ron Shory, BLJC’s vice-president of Human Resources, said they chose the TELUS technology because of its scalability and inherent functionality.
“When we embarked on this path to automate our performance management process known as the Optimizer, we looked at a number of different vendors and ultimately felt that the solution offered by the TELUS team best aligned itself with our needs both present and future,” Shory said. “At BLJC, our competitive advantage is our team members and the great work they do each and every day to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations. Performance management is key to ensuring our team members understand what is expected of them and what they can expect of us in return.”
The TELUS Enterprise Performance Management solution offered by TSSI enhances team member performance by aligning individual career goals to organizational objectives, increasing overall productivity and improving team member engagement.
By automating the performance management process, BLJC will have the ability to track performance in real time, improve the quality of HR services and reduce the administrative costs associated with managing employee performance. This online solution is also virtually paperless and will help BLJC reduce its environmental footprint.
In conjunction with this implementation, BLJC will also be implementing the TELUS e.Succession module. Succession management will allow BLJC to better understand their team members’ experience, expertise, performance, and career aspirations, which in turn helps identify successors for current and potential talent gaps.
By understanding the impact when critical positions are vacated succession management supports improvements in building business continuity planning, better Career Development, improved knowledge transfer and less time getting new team members up to speed.
“TSSI looks forward to working with BLJC to implement and maintain the same tools which helped to make TELUS an employer of choice,” said José Dino, TSSI’s vice-president of Business Development. “Strong technology is critical and so is the conversation between a manager and employee. To build a high performance culture and a winning team, you need to combine these elements in a performance management framework which aligns your employees’ work with the objectives of your organization.”
