This workshop is designed specifically to look at an employee performance and development system from an employee’s perspective. It considers the purpose, responsibilities and potential benefits for employees individually and the organization as whole. Lack of understanding – or even distrust – of such a process is often identified as a key reason PMD systems fail within organizations. This workshop provides a solution.
To give participants – employees – an understanding of the purpose of the performance management and development process and their responsibilities within this process
To provide guidelines to help them in their own preparation and gain maximum benefit from the process
To help participants understand where they fit in the big picture and what their contribution can be
TARGET PARTICIPANT GROUP
For employees who participate in the organization’s PMD program. Typically this may be all non- managing staff when a new program is introduced or groups of new employees as part of their induction process. 8 – 12 participants is the ideal group size.
