The Complete Guide to Performance Appraisal supplies you with the quickest, surest, and most up-to-date methods available for making your appraisal system outstanding. Whether you want to get the maximum impact from your existing system, or you want to create and implement an ideal system from scratch, The Complete Guide to Performance Appraisal is your one-stop, how-to-do-it resource.
Unlike many "systems" books, this guide is notable for its personal, forthright writing style. Author Dick Grote has worked with performance appraisal techniques for more than 25 years, and he tells you frankly which methods have been successful and which have flopped.
This comprehensive book will help you set job objectives and measure the truly important aspects of an individual's performance; prepare managers for the rigors of the appraisal interview, with scripts and proven interviewing techniques; create forms and procedures that satisfy your organization's needs - and comply with legal requirements; gain support for your system throughout the organization; set up a training program for both appraisers and appraisees - a critical step for long-term success; increase employee skills and capabilities using Dick Grote's original "Individual Management Development" procedure; explore the relationship between performance appraisal and compensation; and understand new and emerging trends such as team appraisal, [actual symbol not reproducible] feedback, and computer-generated appraisals.
