Synopsis

An organisation’s success and sustainability are very much determined by the performance of its people. This course establishes the guidelines for evaluating and continuously monitoring the performance of individuals and teams based on agreed performance objectives that are aligned to an organisation’s strategy. A well-constructed and implemented performance management system establishes a strong link between an employee’s performance and rewards through objective measurement of their performance and achievements, and to provide relevant feedback to engage employees for developing their capability and to perform better. As part of the organisation’s performance management system, employees’ developmental needs and career aspirations are also considered. This course is intended to be practice-oriented and is targeted at practicing HR personnel. Practice-oriented learning is reflected in the pedagogic approach and assessment method. The pedagogic approach will be problem-based where students address real workplace HR problems. The assessment method focuses on demonstrated abilities to reflect on identified HR problems, and will integrate theory with practice to deal with the problem. (This course was suggested by Workforce Development Agency [WDA] to address the need for short practice-oriented Human Resource modules which would give Human Resource personnel relevant skills to improve Human Resource Management practices in targeted areas. The reference materials can be downloaded from www.hrcapability.sg - HR Capability Toolkit, Performance Management)
