Module 1: Introduction

In this first module you’ll be introduced to the importance of a strong appraisal procedure, how they can improve morale and how, when they're done badly, they can demotivate employees and make them look elsewhere.

Module 2: Essential Preparation

In this second module you'll discover what information can help you to assess and rate your employees in an objective manner, how to get your employees in the right frame of mind for receiving feedback, and when you should and shouldn't get employees to fill out a self-appraisal.

Module 3: Conducting an Appraisal

In this third module, you'll discover how to conduct the appraisal meeting. This involves how to negotiate tricky conversations, such as how to handle a raise request, unacceptable performance, and what to do when an employee asks for a promotion as well as how to set the tone, ease nervousness and make the process more productive.

Module 4: Next Step

In this fourth and final module you'll learn how to take your next steps after the appraisal and make the year ahead a productive one. This module will help you set goals, create a development plan, and teach you how to carry out a disciplinary as well as how to review your approach.

The online assessment is taken on completion of the training material. You will be asked 10 multiple choice questions with a pass mark of 80%. The answers are marked automatically so you will instantly know whether you have passed. If you don't pass don't worry! You can take the test as many times as you need with no extra charge.

If you manage people and are required to carry out an end of year performance review, this course is for you. The course can help you hone your skills, discover how to handle hard conversations and poor performance, as well as how to make the appraisal process motivating and meaningful for your best performers.
