Performance Management and Training

Write a 7-10 page research paper on the topic of performance management and training for an organization of your choice.

Introduction

It is essential for members of management to understand the important of conducting performance reviews. An effective performance management system is a big component of improving employee performance, which ultimately adds to the bottom line of the organization. Failure to communicate performance expectations and achievements to employees could cause them to be unaware of the expectations or how they can improve. Additionally, formal performance management and training is imperative to help protect an organization against legal claims.

Preparation

Research the topic of performance management and training for an organization of your choice. Performance management includes the supervision of employees and ongoing goal setting, training, and measurement to meet individual and organizational objectives. A minimum of five resources are required to support your work.

Scenario

Choose an organization to use for this assessment. It can be where you are currently employed or a company with which you are familiar. It must be an organization that is researchable, as you will need to gather and analyze information to complete the assessment. You may use the same organization for the other assessments in this course.

If you choose the organization where you are currently employed, please keep in mind that the analyses you make must be based on facts that can be documented rather than your personal opinion as an employee.

Contact your faculty if you have questions.

  • Describe the performance management system currently in place.
  • Explain how the performance management system is explained and communicated to employees.
