Employee Performance Management

Putting Together an Employee Performance Management Plan

Employee performance management is a cyclical process that should be directly linked to your company’s strategic objectives. The goal of an employee performance management plan is to make every staff member successful and to ensure that compensation reflects performance.

The annual employee performance management cycle has four distinct phases. Coaching, development and feedback should continue throughout the process.

  • Goal Setting – Establishing individual goals related to company objectives
  • Monitoring and Coaching – Providing feedback to enhance performance or adjust behaviours
  • Evaluation – Conducting a Performance Review to discuss goals, recognize accomplishments and identify opportunities for improvement
  • Compensation Planning – Determining salary increase and other performance rewards and incentives
