2014 Annual Conference
You will learn five steps to ensure your performance reviews give you a positive ROI instead of making you vulnerable to claims.

Performance appraisals are cross-examination favorites of plaintiffs’ attorneys. Drawing on his best practices research for SHRM and HR Magazine, Janove will share what employers have done to make performance reviews good for employees — and bad for lawyers. You will learn how to train managers to give effective two-way feedback, structure performance reviews to make them user-friendly and focused on the behaviors that matter as well as develop a system-wide approach that promotes consistency and accountability.
