How This Book Will Help You
Short of firing or laying off an employee, the performance-review process is, for most managers, the single most unpopular part of their professional life.
Reviews are time-consuming, fraught with potential legal perils, and, all too often, the source of unpleasant face-to-face conflicts with disgruntled employees. The salary review is, in all likelihood, the setting for the vast majority of openly antagonistic exchanges between employees and their managers. It's no wonder most managers don't look forward to review time.
Manager's Portfolio of Model Performance Evaluations offers more than 100 model evaluations for employees, as well as strategies for conducting successful face-to-face meetings with employees at all levels and performance categories. It also features important advice on such matters as nondiscriminatory evaluation techniques, disabled employees, and termination. Thanks to its easy-to-find, easy-to-use reference format, this book allows managers to go right to the model that reflects the evaluation they must complete, select the appropriate performance category, and adapt text and rating materials to their own specific situation. They can also review key strategy points before the face-to-face meeting with the employee. The result? Less wasted time, less aggravation, and, perhaps most important, less potential for "static" from the employee during the evaluation process.
This book will let managers handle evaluation and performance-review questions quickly, efficiently, and properly, so they can focus their time and energy on the other pressing projects their organization needs them to complete.About the Author:
