Course description

Appraisals and Performance management Appraisals and Performance management - One-day training course in Manchester

This training course will enable participants to identify the integrated roles of management and appraisal. The programme designed by MLP empahsises the need for effective monitoring of staff performance in relation to the aims and progress of the team and the organisation.

The annual appraisal needs to be seen in the context of the role of management as what you decide in the appraisal affects the year ahead. Appraisals need to be seen and used as a development tool for your staff and not a disciplinary action. Handled well and with joint responsibility, quality appraisals can really aid your people management tasks throughout the year.

This Performance Appraisals training course is designed for HR managers and individuals who are responsible for work-related performance appraisals.
