Course Description

Most organizations and employees are dissatisfied with the performance appraisal process; the continuation of this methodology remains a mystery.

Learn why it's a legal myth that performance appraisals protect you from litigation; why appraisals instinctively focus on weaknesses, not strengths; why annually is too infrequent to evaluate and provide feedback to staff—and how the process can be improved and be more meaningful.
