PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT AND TRAINING
Choose an organization to use for this assignment. 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 to complete the assignment. You may use the same organization for the other assignments 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.
Contact your instructor if you have questions.
Write a research paper based on your research into the performance management system, which includes training, of the chosen organization. In your paper:
- Describe the performance management system currently in place.
- Explain how the performance management system is explained and communicated to employees.
