Last Month's Recap:
Individual & Organizational Performance
No one appreciates being ear-marked as an underachiever. But how can we demonstrate or even encourage performance improvements? Some expectations are tangible and easily quantified to show progress. Yet others measures are qualitative, subjective or even elusive. Nonetheless, the individual's contributions are weighed against organizational targets especially during the performance appraisal period.
