What is Performance Management?

 

Performance management is the process of involving employees in accomplishing your organisation’s mission and goals, helping them to set and achieve their own goals for the business, and see how they can reach personal growth as part of this.

Measurement and tracking are a part of how most businesses are managed: agreeing and setting sales targets and budgets, market share, Client satisfaction – and many other areas that tell the Business Owners how things are going against the plan.  So it should come as no surprise that there needs to be a programme that measures the Performance of Employees.
