management cycle Performance discussions that are delivered in a positive manner and provide constructive feedback can deliver exceptionally successful results that develop motivation, increase learning and help resolve problems at work (London, 2003, cited in Kurtulus, 2011)

Any effective performance management system should have defined written policies and procedures with specific directives to ensure that the system is formalised. (Caruth & Humphreys, 2008)

Depending on the characteristics of the individuals concerned and the specific circumstances it has been debated that there is “no best way” to handle an appraisal discussion (Klein & Snell, 1994). Step 2 Managers and Employees set objectives and behavioral expectations There are strong organisational justice arguments for employee viewpoints to be incorporated in performance management systems (Simmons, 2004).

Performance goals should be S.M.A.R.T and challenging and developed jointly by employees and supervisors (Singh, 2012). Performance management systems Step 3 Ongoing performance discussions Performance appraisal discussion should be conducted frequently with yearly appraisals being the minimum (O'Sullivan, 2009).

Performance management is a continual process of discussions between employees and supervisors that requires ongoing feedback, assessments and training and development forecasting that link to performance expectations (Gliddon, 2004) Employees input on performance Involvement in the appraisal process allows employees to express their opinions (Roberts, 2003).

Newer generations entering the workforce are demanding ongoing and instant feedback, favouring this above increased monetary rewards. (Conrad & Matuson, 2009) Step 5 Knowledgeable raters provide input on performance Employees are prone to accept performance review outcomes, including adverse feedback, if they have confidence in the fairness of the appraisal process (Roberts, 2003)

The theory is that raters who have no involvement with the employee would have no motive to provide higher ratings than warranted by the employees’ performance (Scotter, Moustafa, Burnett & Michael, 2007) Appraisal sessions can provide forums where employees needs and emotions are freely discussed when the employee is confident that supervisors will be dependable in their behaviour and supply open and honest answers (Saundra & Baldwin, 2001)

Employee performance information should be collected efficiently and utilising an array of different sources (Gliddon, 2004) Step 6 Step 7 Step 8 Recommendations and Conclusion References Questions Direct supervisor rates performance Formal review sessions Training is a core process to ensure the effectiveness of the performance management system (Caruth & Humphreys, 2008)

Performance appraisal feedback sessions should be conducted in private and away from external disruption (Gliddon, 2004) Pay discussions The connection between individual performance and increased monetary reward is assumed to lead to increased individual performance (Prowse & Prowse, 2009)

Employee remuneration should be made up of base pay and some pay that is at risk. If achieving excellence is the goal the at risk pay should be linked to performance (Service & Loudon, 2010) Performance

Matching individual performance and goals to the organisational objectives is the ideal aim (Schraeder, Becton, & Portis, 2007) Thank you “Performance Management is a scientifically based, data-oriented management system. It consists of three primary elements-measurement, feedback and positive reinforcement. … they must be implemented systematically and in sequence.” (Aubrey Daniels, 2000) Performance Management Cascading goals
