What is staff appraisal training? 

In order to undertake constructive staff appraisals or regular reviews of performance you need to be clear about the purpose of them, and also have a certain level of skill to ensure that the meetings are constructive and add value. They require a range of skills, some of which you may regard as common sense and some which need time, thought and, more importantly, practice in order to make them effect in a one-to-one appraisal.

Ashtons HR Consulting offer a package of training for new and existing line managers to support them in focussing on getting the best from staff appraisals. This looks at the current level of skills and developing new ones in order to make one-to-one interactions during staff appraisals and reviews of more value to the individuals, the manager and their employers.

Ashtons’ staff appraisal training includes:

  • understanding more about the benefits and value of staff appraisals 
  • understanding the roles and responsibilities of the Appraiser and Appraisee
  • developing a structure for your developmental feedback and practicing this technique
  • understanding when to coach individuals, and practicing how to do this well
  • constructing and utilising clear objectives in appraisals.

Staff appraisals and performance reviews with individuals play an important role in managing the achievement of your company, team and individual goals.

They are also an excellent opportunity to give praise and recognise achievements, as well as giving constructive feedback in an open and honest way.

Time spent considering, planning and practicing how to conduct staff appraisals can result in considerable gains for everyone and will enhance the relationship you have with your teams.

The agenda for this training can be altered or tailored to your own needs and requirements.
