If they are not happy or engaged in your organization, they may easily find another job. In this course, you'll learn to identify the typical characteristics of such top performers.

Boosting Performance with the Employee Appraisal Process
Do the words "performance appraisals" stir fear in your mind? Do you think they are, at best, of little consequence and, at worst, a trial to get through? You're probably not alone. However, when approached as a year-round conversation between employee and employer, the performance appraisal process can be a catalyst that leads to higher performance, better relationships, and improvement in key business results. In this course, you'll explore the significance of opening a dialogue through the appraisal process rather than having an annual one-way lane of feedback. You'll learn how the performance appraisal process can be optimized to benefit both employees and employers. You'll also discover how clear feedback affects performance and explore some of the best practices for recognizing and rewarding employees.
