    Program Description:

    Measuring job performance accurately and consistently is one of a supervisor’s most important responsibilities and essential to the success of the organization. Through this program we discuss why it is important and what is involved in the process.  We review the importance of being objective and specific and keeping the focus on actual behaviors.  And we also discuss selecting appropriate criteria for measuring job performance and the different types of rating scales.

    This program adds to a PHR, SPHR or GPHR certified professional’s HR knowledge by increasing their understanding and delivery of this process within their own organizations. Measuring job performance supports quality and productivity in the organization.  Without an accurate assessment of performance, it’s impossible to identify where and how to implement the steps that lead to real improvement. Measuring job performance also offers a sound basis for making good managerial decisions about important concerns such as compensation and promotions. It also helps identify training needs for individual employees or for an entire work group or department. Measuring and communicating job performance positions supervisors to provide valuable feedback on areas for improvement including coaching, counseling, and disciplining employees. Finally, effective measurement of job performance helps ensure employees are treated fairly and avoids discrimination or bias.
