Performance management is one of the key processes that, when effectively carried out, helps employees know what is expected of them and that their contributions are recognized and acknowledged.
Performance management is an ongoing collaborative process and relationship between the employee and the manager. It links individual performance objectives to the strategic objectives of the organization. The organization is defined as the division, department, commission or the Town of Oakville.
Performance management provides a structured process to help employees and their managers communicate and arrive at a shared understanding about roles, responsibilities, priorities, performance expectations, desired results, resources and support mechanisms. Performance management happens on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis both in an informal and formal capacity. Performance management also occurs on a situational basis depending upon the unique needs of the job and the employee.
