Leveraging Feedback to build an agile organization

In this video, guest speakers from DigitalOcean, Matt Hoffman (VP of People) and Lyndsey Hannigan (Talent Development Manager), present their progressive developmental feedback approach to performance management at the Human Capital Institute's first annual Performance Management Innovation Conference in New York City.

Surviving the pressures of rapid growth as an early-stage, venture-backed tech startup in New York City is one thing …  remaining on the cutting edge of innovation as a People Org while doubling in size over a calendar year is another story altogether. Learn from people leaders at one of New York's hottest tech startups as they give us the inside scoop on how they've built an always-on feedback culture and grown a deliberately developmental organization from the ground up, and why that's been such an important catalyst for the rapid growth and success of DigitalOcean.

Viewers will learn:

  • How to design a culture that embraces feedback and continuous growth & improvement
  • Real-life examples of why an agile approach to feedback is a must, not a nice-to-have
  • The central ideas behind DigitalOcean's Talent Development architecture that have helped them scale rapidly in one of the most competitive industries and toughest talent markets in North America
  • How to build an internal coach capacity to unlock higher performance from employees on every level
  • The impact and ROI of a developmental feedback approach
