What is Performance Management about?

To accomplish the multiple goals of performance appraisals, most organisations are leaning toward a continuous program of performance management that is very important to both the professional success of an organisation and the personal advancement of its employees.  A productive performance management system serves an integral business function — it provides a two-way avenue of communication between a supervisor and an employee.  It helps employees to improve performance and it helps an organisation to succeed in a competitive, cost-conscious environment.
