This video shows you how to conduct employee reviews so that they bring out the best from your staff. It also shows you how to nip poor performance in the bud, before it becomes a problem.

Effective performance appraisals tell underperformers exactly what is expected and how they can improve. They add value to your organization by motivating your top employees to do even better.

Unfortunately, clear guidance sometimes falls by the wayside or halfhearted work goes unchallenged. Performance appraisals become mere formalities, are skipped altogether or administered too late to do any good. In this case, workers have already formed bad habits that are difficult to change.

Two story lines make up this performance evaluation training video. One story is about a small business that is implementing a formal review process for the first time and the other is about a large organization trying to fix a broken system. The stories tell the tale of two very different managers as they prepare for the challenge of review meetings. They apply different skills to defuse the tension of the review meeting and achieve the desired results.

In this DVD, you'll learn:
  • The value of employee feedback
  • How to deal with underperformers
  • Skills for the face-to-face review meeting
  • Methods of motivating the top producers
  • The importance of fairness and consistency
  • The advantages of sticking to a regular schedule
  • The nuts and bolts of formats and record keeping
  • Critical elements to cover in your performance evaluation process

This performance review video shows that effective reviews can improve work satisfaction, resolve problems and increase productivity. The review process benefits both the employees and their managers.

Viewers will gain new skills to handle performance review meetings with confidence, improve their performance appraisal techniques and begin to see the process as an effective management tool.
