From the Inside Flap:

Performance Management: Putting Research into Action

The typical performance appraisal process puts the emphasis on an annual evaluation of employee performance. Performance management shifts the focus to an ongoing process that includes setting and aligning goals, coaching and developing employees, providing informal feedback, formally evaluating performance, and linking performance to recognition and rewards.

Performance Management—a volume in the SIOP Professional Practice Series—offers a compendium of the most current thinking, strategies, and best practices in performance management written by leading academics, practitioners, consultants, and researchers in the field. The book's seventeen chapters include an introduction of the concepts and issues, a review of theory and research, evidence-based best practices, dozens of illustrative examples as well as information on future directions, opportunities, and challenges.

Written for human resource managers, consultants, and line managers, this important resource contains a wealth of information for implementing an effective performance management system. The book includes information on the:

  • 14 features that help define a successful performance management system

  • 7 drivers of alignment including the relationship between alignment and financial performance

  • 5 factors that affect the impact of goal setting

  • 11 steps to maximize the value of external coaches

  • CEO and board performance management process

  • 8 dimensions of national culture that shape performance management processes

  • Role of technology in developing and using a performance management system

  • 6 assessment points that can be embedded in a comprehensive performance management system

  • And much more

The contributors offer HR professionals a comprehensive jargon-free understanding of the most recent research, proven practices, and lessons learned on performance management.

From the Back Cover:
