Managing Employee Performance, Appraisals, PIP & Dismissal for Non-HR

1 - 2 December 2020


Effective organizations conduct performance evaluation of their employees periodically. Sometimes this results in dissatisfaction for both employees as well as appraisers. 

This is because appraisers may not have the right appraisal instrument or know how to conduct an appraisal interview which may then be perceived as unfair by the employees, amongst other reasons.

This programme addresses the main issues of designing an appraisal tool, using the various appraisal methods, carrying out a successful appraisal interview.

It also focuses on managing performance to achieve KPis, and managing PIPs and taking necessary disciplinary action for repeated bad performers.

Why Attend The Programme?

Every manager, executive and supervisor who supervises subordinates should be capable of appraising employees fairly and objectively so that they are able to build on the strengths of employees and help the employee overcome the areas of weakness for organizational effectiveness.
