Discuss various performance appraisal systems, the legal and ethical issues associated with performance and rewards, and the critical training needs for managers and employees for performance improvement.
Examine, assess, and evaluate strategies and methods for determining employee training, development and performance needs.
A structured performance management strategy is necessary at SaharaOasis. As part of this strategy, a new performance appraisal tool needs to be developed for warehouse associates, as well as the management staff. Your recommendation must be presented to the vice president (VP) of human resources in a PowerPoint presentation for her review.
Using Bloomberg Businessweek and other creditble resources, research performance management and create a slide presentation that addresses the following:
— Review the different performance appraisal tools, and make a recommendation for a tool to be used with warehouse associates and a tool to be used with management personnel.
— Why did you choose the tools that you did? What impact will they have on the organization’s HR information systems (Internet, telecommunications and networks, software, hardware, data, simulations, e-learning)?
— How would the tools be introduced in the work environment?
— What role will these tools play in performance management?
— What role do they play in avoiding litigation?
— How would you assess the effectiveness of the tools?
Provide a reference list at the end of your presentation of at least 1 Bloomberg Businessweek article, and include in-text citations for the articles in APA format.
