Academic journals mainly focus on performance management for white-collar employees and lack resources on best practices for wage employees. In response, we have consulted with two renowned professors at the ILR School for advice and also interviewed an HR manager at GE Aviation to find out how leading firms manage performance of hourly-wage workers in practice by probing into three major components of how they 1) approach goal-setting, 2) manage the performance evaluation process, and 3) align performance results with other HR programs.
