Performance Managing A Remote Workforce - A Practical Guide
Performance management processes are rarely straightforward. An uncomfortable truth is that most formal performance processes do not lead to a sustained improvement in standards.
Often it is difficult for an employee to recognise and accept that his or her performance is not ‘up-to-scratch’. Sometimes there is a fundamental gap between the requirements of role, and the skills and attributes of the individual performing that role. Sometimes poor performance is a symptom of a much deeper issue.
However, the difficulties with performance management processes are rarely confined to the individual whose performance is under scrutiny. Very often managers are promoted because of their technical, operational or commercial achievements; not because of their ability or experience in managing people. Some have a natural aptitude for supporting and developing the skills of those working under them; but many are inexperienced or ill-suited to effectively managing performance.
This difficulty is even more acute in a remote working context.
This virtual classroom seminar will provide HR professionals and managers with practical guidance on how to performance manage successfully when staff are working remotely.
