An Introduction to Appraisals

Aims:

This session will enable delegates to use best practice when preparing for and conducting appraisal meetings with employees, and understand where these meetings sit within the wider context of performance management systems

Session overview: 

This session will enable delegates to use best practice when preparing for and conducting appraisal meetings with employees, and understand where these meetings sit within the wider context of performance management systems. Councils can achieve the best results from their employees by managing performance within an agreed framework of planned goals, objectives and standards. Councils which have a simple performance management system also have employees who understand the standards required of them, who are able to prioritise their work and know how it fits into the overall aims of the council. Good performance management includes the identification of training needs ensuring that people have the knowledge and skills needed to make the council successful. Topics include how to manage performance through objectives and standard setting and understand how appraisal meetings fit within a performance management system. This session will show you best practice when preparing for and conducting appraisal meetings. Learning is contextualised through the opportunity to practice the skills learned through role play in a safe environment.

  • Understand where the appraisal interview fits in the context of performance management and the local council framework
