This course is designed for everyone who requires an appreciation or an in-depth knowledge of performance management (PM) and implementing a performance appraisal (PA) system underpinned by objectives and competencies as part of an overall performance management approach. This includes HR generalists at all levels of their careers, as well as Specialists in “Performance” or “Compensation” who focus on performance and compensation who wish to develop their skills in performance management and appraisal. The courses are also highly suitable for all Line Managers from all Functions who manage the performance of their employees.
Course Objectives For “Performance Management”
Establishing and managing a performance management culture, determining Key Results Areas (KRAs), setting objectives and the traditional Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), adopting the new approach of setting monthly milestones and using MSCs, and establishing the right competencies and behaviours for all the roles in an organisation are some of the critical cornerstones of any HR department. It is crucial to design and define the right performance management system that supports your organisation’s goals and business objectives and encourages the development of each individual employee. HR professionals already know that individual performance management is an important tool for improving organisation performance. This course shows in a practical way:
- How to get an individual performance management system working successfully
- How to achieve and implement and a culture of performance management
Course Objectives For “Performance Appraisal”
Individual performance appraisals are tools that help you to manage the performance of each employee in your organisation. However, unless you clearly link it to corporate goals and see it as part of the responsibilities of an effective manager, performance appraisals can be nothing more than tick-box paper exercises. Traditional appraisals have sometimes had no links to corporate performance or individual employee results. This topic aims to provide a solid foundation on how appraisals lead to performance ratings which can be used in the specific context of pay-for-performance and the general context of HRM and Talent Management. You will learn how to:
- Increase the effectiveness of employee performance appraisals
- Critically analyse and develop your own performance management system
- Learn about different types of performance appraisal systems used globally
- Develop an appreciation of the commonly used best-practice approaches and formats for employee performance appraisals and performance rating scales
Moreover, this new-and-improved course will also share latest best-practice approaches for abandoning the annual end-of-year performance appraisal meeting and how you can abandon annual KPIs, by moving to monthly milestones and monthly “MSCs”, and monthly 10-minute feedback sessions.
You will work in teams on practical case studies to gain detailed hands-on experience using the tools and techniques discussed throughout the course. You will test various ideas to establish what works for you. Benefit from updating yourself with the latest trends and developments of best-practice in the new next generation approaches for both performance management and performance appraisals.
This highly practical 2-day course includes case studies designed around best-practice companies based in both Europe and globally.
