Session Overview This 3-hour session will enable attendees to use best practice when preparing for and conducting appraisal meetings with employees and understand where these meetings sit within the wider context of performance management systems. Councils can achieve the best results from their employees by managing performance within an agreed framework of planned goals, objectives, and standards.

Good performance management includes the identification of training needs, ensuring that people have the knowledge and skills needed to make the council successful.
