Website Short Description
The performance appraisal is a tool used by managers to assess employee work performance. Effective performance appraisals are not treated as a formality or routine, but are rather viewed as a systematic, formal approach to assess an individual’s job performance. After writing an appraisal, managers should deliver it to their employees in a way that recognizes the worker’s efforts towards reaching company goals while offering advice to help the worker do even better in the future.
Companies use performance appraisals to make important decisions that impact both individuals and the entire organization. This course discusses the role managers’ play in the performance appraisal process, discusses ways to measure job performance, and describes how to delivering performance feedback.
