About This Course:
Many employers in both the public and private sectors are seriously considering dismantling their traditional performance review process. They find it antiquated and a barrier to employer performance and productivity.

A significant number of employers feel that the current review process is an albatross in a knowledge-based economy and workplace. They state that they feel that the old annual employee performance appraisal process is inappropriate and ineffectual.

The idea of procedurally focusing annually on an employee's or work-team's shortcomings completely misses the mark and that energy, effort and time should be spent, by management, on continuous employee development.
