Appraisal Skills (1 day)

In general, managers aren't trained to do appraisals well, so employees don't feel they get any benefit from the process - and managers cite performance appraisal as the task they dislike the most, second only to firing an employee.


A survey conducted by the Society for Human Resources Management concluded that more than 90% of performance appraisal systems are a failure, with managers and employees saying they view an impending review process with dread. 


If this sounds like you, then it's very possible that you could be squeezing a lot more juice from your appraisal or performance review process.


This course is perfect for you if conducting employee appraisals and reviews is part of your management role - but the thought of doing them doesn't fill you (yet) with thrilling anticipation! 


On this one-day course you will gain some practical tips and techniques to help you: 

  • Save time and increase the impact of your appraisal or review process
  • Plan for an appraisal or performance review meeting
  • Conduct an appraisal that provides maximum benefits to both parties
  • Follow it up and make it meaningful and productive
  • Generally squeeze the juice from the process


Research also shows that a good appraisal or review process can make a significant impact on the engagement of whole team and positively influence organisational performance, productivity, retention, financial performance and shareholder returns.



The cost is £295 + vat per delegate and includes:

  • Lunch and refreshments 
  • Interactive workbook 


Discounts are available for bookings of more than one person and /or on more than one course.
