Webinar on Performance Reviews

By TrainHR (other events)

Monday, August 13 2018 10:00 AM 11:30 AM

The TrainHR webinar is approved by HRCI and SHRM Recertification Provider.


Overview: One of the most critical areas of employee relationships-and one of the biggest challenges management faces today-is conducting effective performance appraisals and determining appropriate merit increases. Learn to give performance appraisals that help motivate employees to achieve goals and increase their value to the organization.

Since both managers and employees often view performance appraisals with anxiety, attention is given to preparing for and conducting performance discussions that are objective, complete and defensible. You'll also share experiences and participate in various exercises with other participants to better understand how to obtain the best possible performance from employees.
