Performance Management and Appraisal
Who is it for?
This appraisal and performance management course is for managers with the responsibility for undertaking appraisals and performance management reviews with staff.
Performance management is about getting the best out of people and helping them achieve their potential. Appraisal is a part of that process.
Done well, performance management and the linked appraisal meeting will motivate your staff; it should enhance communications and improve working relationships.
Successfully undertaken, it achieves a shared vision of the purpose and aims of a business and the part the individual plays in that vision.
It is a continuous process of personal assessment and development of people, closely allied to your business’s key goals. But, more importantly, it is about developing each member of staff as an individual so that they can reach their potential.
This course shows you how to get it right for your staff, yourself and ultimately your organisation.
