- HR has designed a detailed performance appraisal process; however, managers are not aware of their responsibilities and as such, do not effectively implement the steps.
- Managers are not comfortable providing feedback or rating their employees.
- The value of effective performance management is not understood by managers.
- Managers are not setting clear, relevant goals and evaluating behaviors against competencies.
- Effective management of performance is not a one-time conversation. Managers must leverage the process, goal setting, competencies, feedback, and ratings to manage their employees’ performance.
- Performance management rises or falls with managers; provide the training they need to have effective performance conversations.
