(July 20, 2012) The California Chamber of Commerce is making available a webinar to teach businesses how to conduct effective performance appraisals.
An effective performance appraisal reviews job duties, sets expectations and provides consistent performance standards. In fact, a fair, consistent and well-documented appraisal helps improve work performance and can prevent legal problems down the road.
The Conducting Effective Performance Appraisals Webinar is being held on Thursday, August 19, 10 a.m.-11:30 a.m.
Join CalChamber’s employment law experts to review an effective performance evaluation process that avoids exposing you to possible liability. The overview covers:
- Planning and conducting performance appraisals;
- Addressing performance issues for long-term employees;
- Maintaining confidentiality;
- Keeping proper records;
- Determining when follow-up meetings are needed;
- Providing continuous feedback; and
- Placing employees on performance improvement plans
