    PERFORMANCE REVIEW: A NEW APPROACH TO APPRAISALS

    Featuring Hugh Laurie, Andy Taylor, Jennifer Hennessey, Beverley Hills and Joanna Brookes.

    Every organisation has a different kind of performance review system. Even so, the reaction to reviews is often the same - one of horror. Performance review sets out to encourage individuals to think about reviews in a new, more positive way.

    In two distinct parts - one for managers and one for appraisees - this amusing drama uses memorable characters to demonstrate different behaviours and techniques, and shows the equally crucial role that both sides have to play.

    Help for managers
    Part one: every manager's nightmare is aimed specifically at managers who know the importance of an employee's performance review, but usually find them fairly painful to do. By making them less confrontational and more productive, managers will be able to fearlessly deal with all performance reviews.

    Classic 'difficult' characters in action are shown with simple and effective strategies for getting them on-side. Through these characters we are able to demonstrate key review techniques managers can develop.

    Help for appraisees
    Part two: every appraisee's dream is aimed at employees approaching their review. This section displays the positive side of performance reviews and gives a full and vivid illustration of just how well they can go when they're handled properly by both parties. It shows the appraisee and manager just what can be achieved from a successful review.
