Performance Management



Why Performance Management?  What does it include?

Employees are the most expensive and most valuable asset of your organization and employees
need constant development and measurable feedback in order to perform at the highest levels.
Performance management, when orchestrated properly, can have a direct impact on the financial
success of a company by reducing costs, increasing revenue, and increasing operational
efficiency. Performance management can increase employee engagement and also lays the
groundwork as a factual basis for employee promotions and merit increases. Performance
management also establishes specific job performance expectations which allow an employer to
substantiate corrective action if an employee is not meeting performance standards.
Performance management is a wide-ranging subject and SWHRC can assist you in developing a
program that meets the needs of your specific company. It is more than just an annual review at
the end of the year. Performance Management focuses on strategically aligning your workforce
with your organization’s mission, vision, and values by planning, developing, monitoring, rating,
and rewarding employee contributions. Performance Management strategies are not only
applicable to individual employees, but also to teams, programs, processes and the organization
as a whole.

How SWHRC Can Help Your Business
SWHRC takes a customized approach to help you create a performance management program
that will successfully communicate expectations and opportunities to employees, with the
purpose of increasing employee engagement and effectiveness and limiting turnover. We work to
ensure that your performance management program is aligned with your organization’s mission,
vision, and culture. In addition, SWHRC will help you develop a program that is compliant with
state and federal regulations, effectively reducing your liability.

SWHRC will work with your organization in developing a Performance Management model to include
the following pieces based on your organization’s need:
 Annual Performance Evaluations
 Employee Recognition/Incentive Programs
 Corrective Action Policies and Documents
 Job Descriptions
 Compensation Policies
 Professional Development Programs
 Employee Development
 HR Strategic Planning

The lack of an effective performance management program can:
