Cairns TEL Talk: Managing People Performance


Cairns City

date & time

28/05/2019 - 6:30 am to 8:30 am

Are your teams’ individual skills, competency requirements and development plans linked to your organisational objectives? If not, you might be finding yourself with a high turnover of staff and/or under-performing teams.

Our next Cairns TEL Talk will bring two locals together to discuss the importance of Managing People Performance and how when done correctly, can boost employee productivity and lead to better business outcomes.

Key outcomes include:

  • Understanding the difference between performance management and performance appraisals
  • Understanding the importance of reporting performance reviews adequately
  • How managing people performance in a family business environment can differ from a corporate environment
  • Why not having a performance policy in place can lead to poor productivity and a high turnover of staff
  • Understanding the difference between employee efficiency and effectiveness
