This feedback can be used in a developmental man- ner. Feedback is useful only when employees are willing to receive it. Of course. Workforce planning comprises a set of systems that allows organizations to anticipate and respond to needs emerging within and outside the organization.
Managers can use feedback to coach employees and improve performance on an ongoing basis. Other organizational maintenance purposes served by performance management systems include assessing future training needs.
This gives the employees a clear sense of areas in which they need improvement and provides documentation if disciplinary action is needed. Being members of the credit union. This improved the way in which the system is used for allocating rewards and therefore serves an administrative purpose.
These activities cannot be conducted effectively in the absence of a good performance management system. SELCO scrapped an old performance appraisal system and replaced it with a new multipurpose and more effective performance management system.
Performance management systems are the primary means through which accurate talent invento- ries can be assembled. Several companies implement performance management systems that allow them to accomplish the multiple objectives described earlier.
For an example of one such company. SELCO offers many of the same services offered by other banks. This information can be especially useful in the case of litigation. If scores on the test and on the performance meas- ure are correlated.
This alignment serves both strategic and informational purposes. This component serves both informational and docu- mentational purposes. Scores on the test can then be paired with scores collected through the performance management system. This serves a developmental purpose. But what does a good system look like? The following characteristics are likely to allow a performance management system to be successful. To help top management achieve strategic business objectives Administrative: To furnish valid and useful information for making administrative decisions about employees Informational: To allow managers to provide coaching to their employees Organizational maintenance: To provide information to be used in workplace planning and allocation of human resources Documentational: To collect useful information that can be used for various purposes e..
The reality is that performance management systems are seldom implemented in an ideal way. Practical constraints may not allow for the implementation of all these fea- tures.
Although multiple purposes are possible.. Which of these purposes are being served by the system you are considering?
Regarding broader cultural issues. The importance of context in implementing highly effective performance manage- ment systems is emphasized throughout the book. In such organizations. The system should be thorough regarding four dimensions.
Systems that are too expensive. This relation- ship was weaker in former East German companies. Results showed that in former West German companies. That is. A good system should be specific: Because one formal evaluation per year is usually not sufficient.. People will not pay attention to a system that has no consequences in terms of outcomes that they value. The measures of performance should also be valid. The performance man- agement system should provide information that allows for the identification of effective and ineffective performance.
These are clearly relevant dimensions. A good system should include measures of performance that are consistent and free of error. In terms of decision making.. In this context. Among other relevant performance dimensions. The system must be meaningful in several ways. Because a good system is inherently discrimina- tory. Korea cultures. Do they feel that supervisors are empathic and helpful? United States to more collectivistic e. Good systems include input from multiple sources on an ongoing basis.
For ex- ample. Perceptions of fairness are subjective and the only way to know if a system is seen as fair is to ask the participants about the system. Such inclusive systems are likely to lead to more successful systems including less employee resistance.
For exam- ple. A good system is acceptable and is perceived as fair by all participants.. Such percep- tions include four distinct components. Think about the performance management system implemented in your organization or the last organization for which you worked. How far is your system from the ideal?
TABLE 1. As noted earlier. Good systems have no secrets. This means that performance is evaluated consistently across people and time. When employees perceive an error has been made.
Establishing an appeals process. This means that the su- pervisor suppresses her personal self-interest in providing evaluations. The process of assigning ratings should minimize subjective aspects.
Which of the features listed in Table 1. Good systems comply with ethical standards. To achieve this goal.

In the absence of a good performance management system. For example.. A study conducted for Mercer. The beneficial link between performance management and training became evi- denced recently in the Korean operations.
Development plans provide informa- tion on what skills will be acquired in the near future. Performance management provides informa- tion on developmental needs for employees. One organization that is able to link its performance management system to training initiatives is Kimberly-Clark. This system makes a clear link between perform- ance and training. This information is also used in making recruitment and hiring decisions. In spite of this unique feature.
Performance management is gaining increased stature and significance given the more recent emphasis on talent management and total rewards manage- ment.

The Australian economy has made an important shift from manufacturing to service..
Work relationships in South Korea are hierarchical in nature and emphasize the importance of groups over individuals.
Performance management is a fairly novel issue in Turkey. Because personal relation- ships play an important role in Turkish culture.
Important issues to consider for successful implementation of performance management systems in China include respect for age and senior- ity and the emphasis on social harmony. Although Japanese firms relied on lifetime employment and seniority as key organizational practices.

Chapter 2 Performance Management Process In theory. Understand important prerequisites needed before a performance management system is implemented. Conduct a job analysis to determine the job duties. In reality. Understand that performance management is an ongoing process that includes the interrelated components of prerequisites. Write a job description that incorporates the KSAs of the job and information on the organization and unit mission and strategic goals. Understand that the poor implementation of any of the performance management process components has a negative impact on the system as a whole.
Understand that a dysfunctional or disrupted link between any two of the performance management process components has a negative impact on the system as a whole.
Understand that the appraisal meeting involves the past. Distinguish results from behaviors. Understand the similarities between performance planning and performance renewal and recontracting. Create results. Performance management does not take place just once a year.
Performance manage- ment is a continuous process including several components. This chapter provides a brief description of each of these components. As described in Chapter 1. Strategic planning allows an organization to clearly define its purpose or reason for existing. If there is a lack. The components in the per- formance management process are shown in Figure 2.
The cascading continues downward until each employee has a set of goals compatible with those of the organization. Subsequent chapters address each of the components in greater detail. Once the goals for the entire organization have been established.

Without a job analysis. A job analysis is a fundamental prerequisite of any performance management system. Ability refers to having the physical. This is done through job analysis. Data are collected from job incumbents i. Knowledge includes having the information needed to perform the work..
As a result of a job analysis. Observation methods include job analysts watching incumbents do the job. Interviews are a very popular job analysis method. Such analysis may not be suitable for many jobs. During a job analysis inter- view.
Job analysis is a process of determining the key components of a particular job. This method can be subject to biases because job analysts may not be able to distinguish important from unimportant tasks..
As an illustration. Skills refer to required attributes that are usually acquired by having done the work in the past. Off-the- shelf methods involve distributing questionnaires. Job analysis can be conducted using observation. Overall scores for all tasks can be ranked from highest to lowest to obtain a final list of tasks. These vehicles are coupled to a trailer or semitrailer by use of a turntable fifth wheel or pintle pivot hook.
Job content information is assessed through three factors: Department of Defense Operates gasoline. Civilian Personnel Management Service. These questionnaires.. The job analyst can then multiply the frequency scores by the criticality scores to obtain an overall score for each task. This questionnaire includes 18 multiple-choice job content questions. As a second example. Performs difficult driving tasks such as backing truck to loading platform..
The frequency and criticality scales may be the following: Considering frequency scores alone would have given us the wrong impression that making coffee is a task that deserved a prominent role in the job description.
Numerous job analysis questionnaires are available on the Internet. Drives over public roads to transport materials. May also handle manifest. May assist in loading and unloading truck.
Combining items and formats from various instruments already available may be the most effective way to proceed. Self-serving bias: This bias leads people to report that their own behaviors and personality traits are more needed for successful job performance compared to behaviors and personality traits of others.
How do we address these biases? A recent experimental study involving two independent samples of 96 administrative support assistants and 95 supervisors working for a large city government implemented a successful Web-based training program that succeeded in mitigating these biases. Social projection and false consensus bias: Social projection bias leads people to believe that others behave similarly to themselves and.
False consensus bias is similar in that it leads people to believe that others share the same beliefs and attitudes as themselves. An important component of a good job analysis is rater training. The Web-based training program.
Be aware that some of these instruments may have been created for specific types of jobs and industries e. Make sure you check the suitability of the instrument before using it in a different organizational context. This instrument does not include multiple-choice questions. This is because people tend to attribute success to themselves and failure to external causes i. Job descriptions are a key prerequisite for any performance management system because they provide the criteria i.
Writing a job description may seem like a daunting task. In our truck driver example. The new forms incorporate task performance standards as well as behaviors specific to individual jobs. At present. Such criteria may concern behaviors i. The need for this integration was rein- forced by results from an employee survey revealing that employees did not know what they were being evaluated on.
Some organizations are becoming aware of the importance of considering pre- requisites before implementing a performance management system. One thing needs to be clear. Take the case of Deaconess Hospital in Oklahoma City.. May be required to unload truck. May require use of automated routing equipment. Such knowledge is obtained through a job analysis. It includes the speed with which the correct response is started with the hand. This knowledge.
If we have good information regarding a job. It does not involve per- forming the activities while the whole body is in motion.
Objectives are statements of important and measurable outcomes. Two key accountabilities are 1 teach- ing preparation and delivery of instructional materials to students and 2 research creation and dissemination of new knowledge. Examples of competencies are customer service. This performance planning discussion includes a consideration of both results and behaviors as well as a development plan.
A discussion of results also includes specific objectives that the employee will achieve as part of each accountability. A consideration of results needs to include the key accountabilities.. A performance standard is a yardstick used to evaluate how well employees have achieved each objective. Consider the job of university professors. For other jobs.
Returning to the example of the professor. This is prob- ably why results from a survey indicated that. This information is typi- cally obtained from the job description. Performance standards provide information about acceptable and unacceptable performance e. This is an example of a situation in which behaviors should be given more importance than results.
In this situation. Once the prerequisites are met and the planning phase has been completed. Discover is headquartered in Riverwoods.. A discussion of behaviors needs to include competencies i.. The topic of development plans is addressed in detail in Chapter 8. The business offers a variety of cards including the Discover Classic Card.
Discover has initiated an approach that addresses the development needs of specific business units by assigning human resources professionals to attend business meetings regularly to gain an understanding of what knowledge.. A discussion of results needs to include key accountabilities i.
This includes performance execution. The company asks managers to go through the same curriculum with classroom and online learning opportunities. Development plans usually include both results and behaviors.
Discover utilizes the various stages of the performance management process to ensure that employee development is a focus that matches the mission of providing a workplace that supports high performance. At a minimum..
Discover Financial Services is a business unit of Morgan Stanley. Collecting and sharing performance data. The burden is on the employee to communicate openly and regularly with the supervisor. Feedback on progression toward goals and coaching to improve performance should be provided on a regular basis certainly before the review cycle is over.
One way to enhance commitment is to allow the employee to be an active participant in the process of setting the goals. The employee should provide the supervisor with regular updates on progress toward goal achievement.
Commitment to goal achievement. Ongoing performance feedback and coaching. Observation and documentation. The employee should not wait until the end of the review cycle approaches to prepare for the review.
