The design flaws of typical appraisals will be discussed and potential solutions for better performance management systems will be offered.

More importantly, learn how to build a better performance management system. When designed properly, good appraisal systems help managers coach employees to increasingly higher levels of performance. Productivity improves when employees know where they stand and are given the right motivation. Discover how to identify the typical design flaws, human fallacies, false assumptions, and the misdirected goals of performance management systems. Gain insight on how to integrate progressive discipline, punishment, and reward systems within your overall performance management framework. Then get expert advice about developing better solutions to these common challenges.

Why you should attend: Every few years companies revise their performance appraisal system with hopes that the new system will be better than the old system. They hope that managers will actually do them and that employees will actually like them. Most often the latest and greatest system fails to meet its goal--performance improvement. Appraisals often pit supervisor against employee and create competitors of team members who vie for top rankings and the pay and other rewards that are tied to good ratings. Avoid typical pitfalls when designing a performance management system by building upon the right elements and eliminating features that create unnecessary conflict. Employees are often upset with their appraisal ratings and their performance typically will spiral downward due to the disagreement with their supervisor over the score. Many performance review sessions are tense and are often preceded with a great deal of fear and anxiety. The stakes are high for the employee when they know that their rating will determine their raise, however, they may be concerned that the ratings are unfair. There are many myths, fallacies, and design flaws associated with typical appraisals.
