A powerful tool kit for transforming an organization through its people.

A well-crafted performance plan has the power to dramatically impact a company’s bottom line by increasing efficiency and effectiveness in the workplace. This uniquely practical book provides a customizable appraisal template covering the essential areas of performance and conduct and reveals how you can adapt it to fit varying business strategies. Taking into account factors such as workforce composition, company growth stage, and organizational goals and challenges, The Performance Appraisal Tool Kit shows you how to:
