Write a research paper in which you address the performance management system of a selected organization, based on information you have gathered and analyzed about the organization.

It is essential for members of management to understand the importance of conducting appraisals because an effective performance management system is key in improving employee performance, which ultimately adds to the bottom line of the organization. Failure to communicate performance expectations and achievements means that employees might not understand what is expected of them or how they can improve. Additionally, formal performance management is imperative to help protect an organization against legal claims.

By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria:

  • Competency 1: Apply human resource strategies to business needs.
    • Describe a performance management system.
    • Analyze ways an organization can protect itself from litigation related to performance management.
  • Competency 2: Prepare appropriate communication to facilitate management decision-making.
    • Explain performance feedback processes.
  • Competency 4: Appreciate the strategic value of HRM within a competitive global business environment.
    • Analyze techniques used as attempts to improve employee performance.

    Performance management goes beyond having an annual performance appraisal. In fact, performance management is a system that is directly linked to the job analysis. From the job analysis, and based on the company’s goals, individual goals are established and communicated. Different positions, including HR, the function manager, and the employee can be involved in establishing these goals. An employee’s performance, as related to these goals, is formally measured in a performance appraisal. Performance should also be communicated informally through regular dialogue between manager and employee. In theory, there should be no surprises at an annual performance appraisal.

  • To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of the business community.
    • What are some of the factors that drive employee motivation?
    • What are some things organizations can do to encourage superior performance from employees?
    • Preparation

      • Choose an organization to use for this assessment. It can be where you are currently employed or a company with which you are familiar. It must be an organization that is researchable, as you will need to gather and analyze information in order to complete the assessment. You may use the same organization for the other assessments in this course.
      • If you choose the organization where you are currently employed, please keep in mind that the analyses you make must be based on facts that can be documented rather than your personal opinion as an employee.
      • Research the performance management system of your chosen organization.


      Based on your research into the performance management system of the organization you selected, write a research paper in which you complete the following:

      • Describe the performance management system that is currently in place.
      • Explain the formal performance feedback process.
      • Describe any informal performance feedback that takes place.
      • Analyze how the organization protects itself from any litigation related to performance management.
      • Analyze the techniques used by managers in the organization to try to improve employee performance.
