Are performance reviews at your company like fruitcake—you get it every year whether you want one or not? It doesn’t have to be like that. Because everyone wants to know how they’re doing, how they measure up, and what their chances are for advancement and rewards. And they want to do things right.
The Essential Performance Review Handbook will help you understand why performance reviews:
• Serve as an important business tool.
• Motivate personnel and increase productivity.
• Help achieve your company goals.
• Improve manager-employee communication.
• Reduce your risk of legal liability.
Whether you're a manager or a HR professional, this is an indispensable resource to help you create confident, motivated, and productive employees.
