Better Performance Appraisals

High performing and fully engaged workforces have leaders at the helm who take ownership for performance appraisal processes and ensure they get done. In many organisations appraisals are completed inconsistently (or not at all) on cumbersome forms resulting in experiences that demotivate staff.  

Managers need to be skilled in running constructive and forward looking appraisal meetings.  Operating a successful performance appraisal system is a big factor in building a positive workplace culture because what leaders do (or don’t do) influences how employees view the organisation. Aligning strategic, annual and individual goals through the performance appraisal system allows staff to see the relationship between their own contribution and the overall direction of the business.  Leaders who take on the challenge of bringing performance appraisal systems to life may be surprised how well staff respond.
