It’s not about the software in Performance Appraisals

I caught sight of another recent survey which was looking at successful initiatives within organisations which were believed to boost productivity.

Training for Managers was highest on the list, closely followed by performance management - this is a theme I have seen emerge in many surveys, and again highlights the critcial role of this managerial practice as a means of ensuring employees work to the best of their ability.

As with 360 degree feedback though, doing it is one thing, doing it efficiently through the use of web-based technology is another, but doing it effectively requires a mindset whereby managers realise that good performance management isn’t just an annual review, or a form filing exercise, but rather a series of meaningful conversations with their team members that allow them to explore how they could improve, change and develop to maximise their contribution.
