Managing performance

Why manage performance?

Managing the performance of employees involves making sure that your employees’ performance meets the expectations of your business and contributes to its goals.  It is a continuous process and the aim is to continually improve the performance of individuals and ultimately the business.  A high performing workforce can help an organisation proper in a competitive environment.  

Performance management refers to both the informal, day-to-day management of individuals and teams by their immediate line manager and also the formal framework within which the performance of individuals and teams is assessed and improved.  

A good performance management process will help everyone in an organisation to:

  • know what your business is trying to achieve
  • know the skills and competencies needed for the role
  • know what is expected of an employee
  • identify performance problems and allow you to deal with them
  • know how an individual contributes to an organisation achieving its goals.  

An effective performance management process can also form a vital part of the organisation’s Talent Management and Succession Planning processes. 

At Ashtons HR Consulting, we can support you as follows:

  • assisting you to design a performance management process tailored to the specific needs of your business
  • training managers in dealing with both high performing and underperforming employees, along with all other employees
  • reviewing existing Performance Management policies and procedures to ensure they comply with best practice and legal requirements.
