Performance Management

Four Insights to Make Your System Work

A new study reveals that managers and HR professionals are disenchanted with their performance management systems. Here are some guidelines for changing this reality.

Oh yes, that’s right: I need to complete performance evaluations for my direct reports and submit them to HR. Joe realizes that he has been putting off scheduling meetings with his staff, but there are so many other more important issues that require his attention.

This will save time and enable him to send the completed forms to HR reasonably close to deadline.
