Improving Talent Management

“Improving Talent Management”

Fewer than one-third of respondents to a survey say their company is prepared for the future. Even among the top companies, only 27% say they have employees prepared for openings in the executive ranks, and only 18% are ready to fill management positions at lower levels. About one-third (34%) say their organization develops leaders effectively. What competitive advantages could a skilled HR manager deliver at an organization committed to improving its talent management?

Assignment 2: New Supervisor Training on Performance Evaluations

Now that the position has been created, you’ve taken the opportunity to create a PowerPoint presentation to train new supervisors on how to conduct performance evaluations.

Whether you use an annual evaluation, real-time feedback, or quarterly evaluations, it is important that new supervisors understand:

  • the rationale for a performance evaluation in general,
  • the rationale for the specific one in use,
  • the instrument used, and,
  • the process for the evaluation.

The PowerPoint presentation should be a minimum of 10 slides with graphics and Notes Pages.

NOTE: One of the positions the new supervisors will be conducting performance evaluations on is the job in your description from Week 3. Find creative ways to incorporate your work from that assignment into this one.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • You must include the Notes Pages. This is where you explain in detail the thoughts you want to convey in each slide, only in more depth.
  • Visually appealing: graphics (required) should be appropriate for the environment and audience. Text should be visible from 18 feet away (generally considered 18 pt. font or larger).

TIPS: This is a Power Point Assignment. This assignment is very straightforward and will include concepts from throughout the entire class. You need to specifically include and expand on material from your first paper assignment from Week 3. Also, as the assignment instructions (above) indicate you need to select an evaluation frequency (i.e. annual, real-time, quarterly or other), and then discuss the step-by-step process for conducting the evaluation – you MUST include speakers notes along with material on each of your slides. [For more on Speakers Notes using MS Power Point, please visit this site: ]

And, please address each of the bullet points above on rationale, instruments used and process. You will want to read review Ch. 10 material again) from Week 5 readings) and pay particular attention to p.p. 290-291 and Figure 1.1 within those pages for a model on performance management – you can use this model as the basis for your slides. You will want to also include material on the purpose of performance management / evaluations p.p. 291-292, criteria for effective performance management p.p. 292-293, and discuss methods for performance management pp. 294-295. Finally, from Ch. 9, pay special attention to Ch. 9 and specifically the section on HRM’s Contribution to High Performance, starting on page 272 of our book. Also, pay attention to figure 9.3 Employee Performance as a Process material on page 274.

Finally, PLEASE add your references in APA format on an additional and final ‘Reference’ slide. If you do all of this, you should have no problem creating ten slides with speakers notes
