Competencies and Performance Management—Setting the Groundwork
Too often, managers and employees view the performance management process as an obligatory annual event, rather than a valuable ongoing cycle. Discussions about goal setting and performance often are difficult and uncomfortable. This does not have to be the situation in your organization.
In this article, we review the major steps of the performance management cycle, illustrating how each step builds on the other, creating a continuous and ongoing process. We will share market trends and a report of employee attitudes to illustrate how a well-structured performance management program can help address employee concerns and clarify misunderstandings about the performance management process.
