Our aspiration is to create a high performing culture. This is important to us as we transform our business and put our customers at the heart of everything we do. At Sage we encourage our colleagues to over achieve their goals and go the extra mile. We expect all colleagues to be action orientated and strive to deliver results and achieve positive outcomes in line with our values. The technology sector is fast moving and we all have a role to play in creating a high performing culture so that we can grow our business and stay ahead of our competition. 
We will achieve this through a performance process which will help us focus on results and behaviours. Allowing us to reward success and inspire colleagues in a consistent way. Our performance processes aim to: 

Drive and reward results

You will be rewarded for achievement of your goals and the contribution you make to improving our customer experience and organization success.

Provide goal clarity and strategic alignment (the "golden thread")

Your goals will be aligned to our strategy, which has been created with our customers at the heart. Your line manager has the responsibility to ensure you are focused on the right things and are clear about what is expected of you.

Embed behaviors that reflect Sage values

It’s not just about "what" you deliver, but also "how" you deliver and the behaviors you demonstrate in achieving the end outcome. This is factored into how your year-end performance rating is determined.

A mechanism for regular review

Discussing how you are achieving against your goals is not confined to formal performance review meetings. We recognize that to create a high-performing culture, it's vital that your line manager provides you with feedback during regular (at least monthly) one-to-ones.

Facilitates development and performance improvement

We expect you to have a meaningful development plan and to partake in a minimum of five training days per year. If you fail to deliver what is expected of you, despite receiving clear direction and support, we may need to build a performance improvement plan, which will focus on getting you back on track quickly.
