Performance Management

The Process

Performance management is an ongoing, collaborative process between managers and employees to build relationships, set expectations and goals, give and receive feedback and discuss professional development needs and career aspirations. The annual performance appraisal process provides an opportunity for: setting expectations and individual performance goals; giving and receiving feedback; engaging and developing employees; motivating, recognizing and rewarding employees; coaching for performance; and managing corrective action.
