As salary increase budgets remain tight, many companies are continuing to refine their performance evaluation processes to ensure that high performers are rewarded and retained. This session will focus on how to train managers of your company in the identification of key accountabilities (i.e. job tasks) and competencies (i.e., behaviors) for positions they supervise. As part of this session we will provide examples of how other companies have identified quantifiable goals for common positions in your industry. In addition, we will provide information on how to properly utilize a performance evaluation form, how to keep the form simple, and to recognize and avoid common rating errors. Our goal is to provide information to make the evaluation process more effective, easier to administer, and provide examples of how your Company can link the performance review to salary increases and/or incentive payouts.
