Quick question: Do you conduct performance assessments in your workplace?

If your answer is a BIG 'no', continue reading to discover four reasons you should conduct performance assessments so you can effectively manage your employee's performance.

Four reasons you should conduct performance assessments

The Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf Service says you must conduct regular assessments of your employees' performance.

Here's why:

Reason #1: Measure the extent to which they're fulfilling their job descriptions.

Reason #2: Reward them appropriately.

Reason #3: Help them if they're underperforming. You can help your employees to improve to the levels you require by providing suitable instruction, training, guidance or counselling.

Reason #4: Identify non-performers or under-performers to get rid of them if they don't improve within reasonable time.

Now that you know why you must conduct performance assessments, keep this in mind to ensure you assess your employees.

Do you have a paper-shuffler working for you?

You know that person…
 

  • Always busy but never meets deadlines…
  • Always making excuses for why he doesn't meet company targets…
  • He doesn't meet his KPI's…
  • And he's constantly making costly mistakes…


The next logical step is to get rid of him and get someone who can do the job. But watch out, that could cost you BIG at the CCMA!

So what can you LEGALLY do?

*************************************

Assessing your employee's performance isn't about discipline

Discipline isn't part of a performance management process.

If your employee breaks workplace rules, you must deal with the issues in terms of your disciplinary policy and procedure.

A performance management process isn't about correcting disciplinary infringements, it's about assessing work performance and reacting according to the outcome of your assessments.

Always remember that a proper and effective performance management system is there to provide your employees with certainty in terms of what you expect of them.

We've given you good reasons to conduct performance assessments in your workplace, now make sure you carry out this process effectively.
