Performance Appraisal Training Courses – The Business Risks?

by ltconsulting on September 25, 2012

This one-day appraisal course will teach delegates how to raise the motivation of employees and improve performance through setting objectives; giving effective feedback and praise. Our performance management course also provides tips and techniques for managing conflict in appraisals as well as showing delegates how to write effective performance reviews quickly, easily and effectively.  Delegates who have taken our appraisal courses have gone on to see a dramatic increase in staff performance through applying the strategies they have learnt in the art of ‘appraising employees successfully’.

The Business Risks?

An organisation runs more risks by not having an appraisal system at all. Without an effective appraisal scheme the methods used to assess performance are likely to be ad-hoc. Each manager will have his/her own idea of acceptable and unacceptable levels of performance and staff may compare notes about conflicting treatment. Employees may feel aggrieved if they are given little, if any feedback about their performance. Staff may feel they are in a dead-end job if they have limited scope to discuss future development and progression.

By not implementing an effective appraisal system an organisation risks:

  • Poor morale due to limited feedback about performance and future development
  • Discontent due to apparently conflicting or uneven treatment of staff
  • Higher staff turnover due to lack of perceived opportunities to develop and progress within the organisation
  • Inconsistent information about levels of performance
  • Stagnation in their employees’ skills levels
  • Inaccurate manpower planning and succession planning processes
  • Inappropriate training and development activity generating costs and taking up time and effort with limited and un-quantified returns to the organisation
