Businesses achieve the best results from their employees by managing their performance within an agreed framework of planned goals, clear objectives and consistent standards.

Workplaces with a well-communicated and well-managed performance management system have better engaged staff, who understand what is required of them and know how their work fits into the overall aims of the business.

All delegates will receive an electronic certificate of attendance for their participation in the training.
