Performance appraisals are an essential part of any supervisor’s position whether they have one or many direct reports. However, most managers dread the thought of conducting formal (often annual) performance appraisals. In this webinar, we review the essential elements in preparing and conducting effective and impactful performance appraisals. We provide an overview of how some companies are changing their performance assessment processes to better address the needs of different parts of their businesses, and also how some businesses are moving to make these assessments tailored more to each individual. Finally, we examine the effectiveness of 360-degree assessments, and also how assessments are best conducted in matrix organizations.
