HR Competencies

  • Business Acumen
  • Consultation
  • Critical Evaluation


If your organization is thinking about moving away from the annual performance appraisal this class is for you. If you are wondering if more frequent conversations between managers and employees will improve your business results, this class is for you. If you are curious about the research, the positive and negatives, and the factors for success of such an intervention, this class is definitely for you.

While the number of organizations that have moved away from traditional annual performance appraisal (and form) are small, the trend is likely to gain momentum. The potential danger for organizations is that simply eliminating the annual form is not a panacea. Issues with performance management are deeper than the form.

Other issues include the process in creating the form, misaligned forms, and manager training; links to compensation and development, lack of on-going performance management, and, finally, the reluctance of managers to engage in expectation setting and performance assessment discussions.

This content-rich class will help you decide if the latest trends for how organizations are managing performance is right for your organization.


  • History of performance appraisals
  • Current research vs. myths
  • Legal ramifications
  • Factors to consider before switching
