Performance Management

Performance management is the system by which an organization is able to effectively align its strategic goals with the day-to-day functions of its staff while operating in a turbulent, global economy.  It includes the examination, modification, and creation of accurate job descriptions, task assessment and measurement, and clarification of employee expectations.  In addition, supervisors must learn how to effectively write and deliver performance appraisals that motivate employees and help them to reach their full potential.  HR professionals need to ensure appropriate training of their management and leadership staff, create an environment conducive to open communication and teamwork, and hold team leaders accountable so as to bring organizations closer to achieving their mission.
