Performance Reviews that are not prepared for properly tend to be of limited use, and turn into a form-filling exercise with all concerned feeling that they are waste of time.
This session on preparing for a Performance Review Interview aims to help you understand the benefits that appraisals can bring if they are approached properly. It will outline the things that you should do to make sure that the discussion is worthwhile and adds value to the individual and the business. It assumes that those attending the session are managers.
In particular, by the end of the Power Hour you will be able to:
- State the benefits of performance appraisals for all involved
- List what you need to prepare in advance of the appraisal discussion
- Suggest what information should be gathered as evidence of performance, and why.
