The way we work is changing. The management role is increasingly complex.
Manufacturing goods, providing a service, or an academic organisation, this culture change demands a flexible response. Driven by technological advance, the market moves fast. Public or private sectors, the NHS or professions, it’s crucial to respond positively.
So the role of the annual appraisal is vital, providing a positive platform for management and staff development. A strong element in nurturing and retaining talent.
But as teams get smaller and the pace of work accelerates, is this just another task to fit into a busy schedule – for manager and their staff?
People are a key resource. How they respond to change reflects on departmental outcomes and external perceptions.
Today’s employers have higher expectations of those entering the workplace. They focus clearly on talent management, staff retention and smaller, engaged, teams able to draw on experience and to work smarter.
Within this framework the appraisal is a vital management tool. Is it still fit for your purpose?
All our half-day workshops provide a flexible in-house resource which can be tweaked to reflect specific training needs.
