Course overview

Why have a performance appraisal – Let’s start at the beginning. Most people understand that a performance appraisal is a set review of an employee’s performance. And, that an appraisal interview is an excellent and positive way to review the employee’s overall contribution to a company.

It’s easy to see how some people, who are not familiar with performance appraisal systems, might still see it as a chance for management to spy on staff. Be sure first to share that an assessment or performance-review will isolate and identify an employee’s contribution to the overall objectives of the company involved. Be aware that some audiences may find it challenging to determine why there is a need to have performance appraisals in the first place. You’d be surprised that both managers and employees alike tend to be unsure of the value of a performance appraisal for all parties involved.

Use the content to examine why companies utilize performance management systems. In many ways, this frustration is understandable and expected. So before any emotions or expectations get out of control, you need to incorporate personal experiences of performance appraisals. These interactions and sharing of expertise will also foster better engagement and learning opportunities.

An effective performance appraisal procedure – This might go without saying, but your audience needs to know how to participate within an appraisal system. Be sure to outline what your audience needs to do, but recognize that different people may possess different experiences — be mindful of these differences. And, even if your audience has all the skills needed to perform their roles, you should use the material to explore the role that managers and employees both play within performance management systems. Here is where you discuss an effective performance appraisal procedure. Use the content to help navigate the advantages of strong communication skills and gather feedback from your audience on how they may impact on their roles.

Understanding different types of appraisals – Selecting the right appraisal technique can play a significant role in a company’s success. But how well does your audience understand the different kinds of appraisal discussions in the workplace? Experience tells us that a lot of people may be afraid of participating in forms of performance management, and participation can be well outside their comfort zones.

In this section, use the course material supplied first to examine various approaches that are available to the organization (e.g., (e.g., 360-degree feedback skills). Next, you should use the content to focus on the need for preparation and on how to write an appraisal.

The appraisal – How should an employee participate in a performance discussion? How should they prepare?

In this section, you can use the content to unpick that when people get involved within a performance appraisal system, that they often consider what they need to do in advance, the steps involved, and how they should communicate their overall performance. Use the course material provided to look at fundamental aspects like the appraisal discussion and the need to manage criticism and feedback.
