Conducting Effective Performance Reviews: Recognize Achievements, Correct Poor Performance & Manage Reactions

Performance Rating

What's the worst part of your job? Performance reviews.

Almost everyone hates performance reviews. They stress out employees … they stress out managers … they create a huge hassle for HR. If you're like most employers, you're using procedures and documents cobbled together over the years. Result? A mere 30% of workers say their evaluations help them improve performance. Only 3 out of 10!

You can't afford a casual approach to performance appraisals. Not when so much is at stake: pay rates, promotions, who gets chosen for training programs, who stays or goes during a reduction-in-force.

That's why Business Management Daily is teaming up with management coach Marie McIntyre on an all-new webinar to help you better prepare, execute and maximize the effectiveness of your performance appraisals.

How are your performance reviews performing for you?

Do they communicate clearly? Do they give your employees the feedback and goals they need to correct and improve their performance? The answer, most likely, is no.

The first step to maximizing your performance appraisals is to change the way you think about the discussion. Instead of viewing the review as a necessary evil, recognize it as a rare opportunity to have an in-depth conversation with employees about their work.

Conducting Effective Performance Reviews will help you transform your review process from administrative drudgery into a powerful motivational tool. Take a look at the agenda…

During a successful appraisal:

✔ Good work is fully appreciated

✔ Future expectations are clarified

✔ Performance concerns are clearly defined
