WORKSHOP SNAPSHOT: Learn how to create a manageable—and effective—system for evaluating performance at your organization.


Most HR professionals look forward to conducting annual performance reviews about as much as a trip to the dentist, and most employees aren’t sold on the concept, either. In fact, many employees don’t think performance reviews are the least bit accurate. So, does that mean reviews are a thing of the past? Not necessarily.

A solid strategy for feedback that is mutually beneficial to both you and your employees is always going to be the key to talent retention, a positive work environment, and the overall growth and productivity of your organization, especially when you’re managing employees from multiple generations.

Plus, a performance management strategy that involves employees in the goal-setting process, along with continuous feedback and innovative compensation strategies, can drive not only organizational success, but the continued growth of your employees as well.

In order to achieve all of these goals, your performance appraisal process needs to be just that—an ongoing process, not a single annual event. A comprehensive framework for ongoing feedback between you and your employees will keep your organization productive and moving forward.

During this one-day comprehensive training, you’ll learn:

  • How to develop objective, quantifiable performance appraisal metrics that align with your organization’s strategic mission and goals
  • When to use both positive and constructive feedback
  • Key elements of a successful performance improvement plan (PIP)
  • Why money is no longer the best way to motivate superior performance
  • The benefits of succession planning—no matter what the size of the organization
  • And much, much more!
