Fundamentals of Conducting Effective Performance Management

Being a supervisor is hard. You are tasked with overseeing a diverse group of individuals, each with their own personality, background, skillset, and level of engagement. Learning how to juggle the distinct needs of each employee—assessing their individual strengths and weaknesses, establishing and maintaining good working rapport, tracking their progress, and providing timely, constructive feedback on their performance—while simultaneously meeting your own productivity or performance goals can be a daunting task, to say the least.

Fortunately, KWW attorneys Amanda Smith and Mike Tontillo are here to help. In this interactive workshop, Amanda and Mike will walk supervisors through the fundamentals of evaluating employee performance by providing practical tips for getting the most out of employees and for minimizing legal risk. Topics to be discussed include:

  • Legal and practical considerations when conducting formal and informal evaluations;
  • Tips for balancing positive and negative feedback;
  • Best practices regarding documentation and legal pitfalls to avoid;
  • Guidelines concerning the effective use of performance evaluations and performance improvement plans;
  • DE&I considerations when conducting evaluations in a diverse, modern-day workplace; and
  • Strategies for evaluating remote employees.

Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and share their own experiences. Both virtual and in-person seats are available—sign up today!
