Introduction To The Ultimate Performance Management Guide

Performance management is an ongoing process of communication between a supervisor and an employee that occurs throughout the year, in support of accomplishing the strategic objectives of the organisation. The communication process includes clarifying expectations, setting objectives, identifying goals, providing feedback, and reviewing results. It is a continuous and systematic approach to ensure achievement of organisational business goals by streamlining the employee performance and efforts to match the set goals efficiently.  

Performance management helps create a work environment where people are motivated to perform to the best of their potential to produce desired results and beyond.

  • Goal setting,

  • Performance evaluation based on the review and communication
  • Recording and reporting of the evaluation
  • Development of learning tools to address training needs identified from the evaluation
  • Reward and recognition of superior performance
