It’s appraisal time – and everyone groans.  Management is uncomfortable having to fill out the forms and grade staff.  Staff is uncomfortable because there might be some bad surprises.  Everyone agrees, the once a year performance appraisal is worthless.

So why do we continue to use it?  Unfortunately, because that’s what we’ve always done.

This course is designed to show you there are better ways to appraise and motivate employees.  The frequent highly interactive conversation about performance has been found to be far more effective than a one-sided “report card.”

I really enjoyed this presentation. I agree that annual evaluations are worthless! Believe it or not, it can get even worse; our company owns numerous facilities and each one is a little different, as to the services they provide. The job descriptions are sent out by corporate and extremely generic and the evals match, and both are password protected so you cannot tailor them to match your facility. So sad!
