Course Benefits

Performance appraisals are one of the ways in which employee performance, aspiration and motivation can be managed. The relationship with the line manager has consistently proven to be the most important motivational factor for employees, so it is important for an appraisal to be well-planned and thoughtfully-run.

This course will support you to reflect on your own experience of appraisals, understand how appraisals can be used most effectively and gain practice of using the required skills.
