Description
Managing performance is a critical focus of HR activity. Well-designed strategies to recognise and improve performance and focus individual effort can have a dramatic effect on bottom-line results. The problem is to determine what the processes, tools and delivery mechanisms are that will improve performance in your organisation, as well as determine which ones are best avoided. The authors have tracked performance management processes over the past seven years, and their comprehensive survey reveals what leading organisations are doing to manage their employees' performance and how they are delivering results.
With detailed illustrations from the real world, and clear practical advice, this text shows you how to improve the management of your employees' performance.
Managing Performance will help you:
- design performance management processes that reflect the context and nature of the organisation;
- create supportive delivery mechanisms for performance management; and
- evaluate and continuously develop performance management strategies to reflect the changing business environment.
