For both managers and employees, performance reviews are too often viewed as "necessary evils"--an obligatory but onerous activity that no one likes. But it doesn't have to be that way. Manager's Guide to Performance Reviews details programs and procedures for using reviews and their results to improve employee morale, reduce managerial workload, and enhance individual and organizational performance. Let this latest addition to McGraw-Hill's popular, hands-on Briefcase Books series introduce you to a step-by-step process that will allow you to: Document performance fairly and objectively Accurately diagnose and point out performance issues Tailor reviews to help employees improve their performance
