A career management plan is an important facet to an employee’s growth and development path throughout his or her career. This plan guides an individual on reaching their goals. Performance management combines the focus and dedication on improving performance on the Individual or team level on a daily basis. To practice high-quality performance management, managers must provide timely feedback about performance, while consistently focusing attention on the ultimate objective (Socio, 2005). The new and improved Intercalate sales team has just completed an extensive in PPTP training.
As a result of this management would like to take this opportunity to do a much better Job going forward on maintaining better employee appraisals and making sure employees are on the right track and remain there. The ongoing dilemma with appraisals has always been finding the right way to communicate key individual processes. By providing in depth evaluations, management Is hopeful these appraisals can only lead to positive employee development as well as motivate the employees to Improve (Browse & Browse 2009) ND take charge of their own career paths.
Performance evaluations will be done blob-annually using the appraisal form. The performance will be measured against the Job analysis and organizational goals standards. The reason for the midyear review is just to check in with employees see what they need help with and let them know how they are progressing and to notify them of any weaknesses in their performance, if there are no weaknesses this is also an excellent time to inform employees Just how wonderful a job they are doing.
The annual employee appraisal goes over all the same points but it is also the time when raises and bonuses if applicable are discussed. The annual appraisal is also when management will discuss employee goals and aspirations, and assist the staff with understanding how to achieve those goals and advance their career simultaneously (Moran 2010). After meeting with the employee they will be given a chance to review their appraisal and If applicable offer a rebuttal to the appraisal as they see fit.
These appraisals have to be returned to Human Resources and they do go on an employee’s armament record so they are taken very seriously and much thought has been put into each and every one. The appraisals and reviews also present employees with the opportunities to discuss advancement within Intercalate whether it be a promotion, further training or educational opportunities.
If an employee is showing any signs of weaknesses now would be the time to discuss further training or education with them or mention they do have a mentor they can go to for further on the Job training and help as well as managers that are eager to guide them in the right direction. Those sales employees, who are excelling in all areas, now would be the time to mention promotion to Team Leader, Manager, or as a Trainer for all existing and new sales team members.
