Abolish Performance Appraisals – Lead this Pivotal Trend in HR

Employee feedback

Is there an atmosphere of organizational dread or delight when it is “review time.” Not many people -supervisor or employee -enjoy the traditional way of performance evaluation. If employees welcome the review, it is often because they crave the feedback and expect more money!  Performance appraisals win the award for the most unappreciated HR process and it is the most mishandled!  With this workshop, we will design new methods of providing feedback and elevate your performance management objectives, organizational success, employee growth and engagement. In this course, we will review methods and materials related to Performance Management to date and discover more modern methods for performance feedback, employee development and paying people without the yearly piece of paper.  Abolishing old performance appraisal methods and changing this tradition will have a tremendous impact on employee attainment, retainment, engagement and development and overall culture. This course will present relevant terms and laws related to the performance management systems and the outcome will be a new performance management system which is both legally compliant and motivational to your workforce.
