A company’s performance management process is integral not just to the operations of the business, but also to the relationships developed with, and among employees. Having a clear performance management plan in place sends a strong message to your staff that the organisation is invested in the professional development and career growth of its people - an important factor underpinning employee motivation and loyalty.

The performance management process – integral to the success of your company

Having a strong performance management process in place is more than a human resources responsibility. It is tied to the operating success of the company, providing a framework on which bonuses, pay rises, and salary reviews are based, and this in turn directly impacts staffing costs.

Having a clear performance management plan for each employee provides a transparent framework for every staff member to know how well they have performed, where they can improve, which areas they need further training and professional development in – and how the company will support (and reward) them to grow and develop in their career.

Why is a performance assessment important?

The performance assessment is a valuable opportunity to provide feedback to your staff on how they have performed, where they can improve, and to plan career goals for the year ahead.
