Register and pay for the survey online (located in the HR section) and the full study will be emailed to you in a zipped file, permissible for use by anyone within your organization, including both board and staff.

Performance Management: A Year-Round Pursuit

Wednesday, Dec. 6 from 1 – 4 p.m. with Phyllis Hartman, ESC Volunteer

Employees, supervisors and managers all seem to hate the performance management process equally. It is often time-consuming for supervisors and doesn’t get the expected results. Employees may feel judged or not appreciated. Since feedback and documentation are critical to organizations, how do we make the process work better? Join us for this session on the good, bad and ugly of performance management as we discuss best practices and some of the key components to better systems. We will also discuss the importance of continuous communication and feedback between employees and their bosses.

Fee: $65 ($55 if paid online).
