Smart Management: Effective Performance Review Practices

SKU: ST-0184Duration: 120 Minutes

Studies show that well over 90% of organizations engage in a formal employee Performance Review (or Appraisal) Process, but the practice is highly varied between companies - and sometimes within a single company - in both the way it is conducted and its effectiveness. In fact, Performance Review is often dreaded by both managers and employees. One reason is that managers often lack skill in objectively evaluating and providing useful feedback to employees. The purpose of this interactive online course is to equip managers to engage in effective employee performance reviews that will help employees understand and maximize their performance. We will also show how employees can best participate in the process. When done effectively, the Performance Review will have a positive impact on the motivation and performance of employees and their managers and will benefit the entire company.
