The Principles of Performance Management
In any organisation, the traditional model of strict command and control wastes a significant amount of time and money. Mutual trust, employee motivation and readiness to perform can easily be undermined. Performance management, on the other hand, offers a different, much more effective approach. In formal terms, performance management involves the achievement of performance targets through the effective management of people and the environment in which they operate. It’s about setting achievable goals for the organisation and targets for individuals and teams.
Approved by CPD – Duration 55 mins* – €30.00
This course lasts around 55 minutes and will provide attendees with an overview of the key principals of performance management and the tools to implement this in their organisation. Performance management is about joint engagement between the employer and employee to set realistic performance targets which are achievable and benefit both the staff member and the organisation. It recognises that employees can only enhance their performance in areas which they can control or contribute to and that employees can assist organisations to identify opportunities for growth and improved efficiencies. Through enhanced engagement, employers will become more familiar with their employee’s skills and ambitions and can support performance improvement by identifying opportunities for their employees to learn new skills and tools which will ultimately be of benefit both to themselves and to the organisation.
