Delivered by our HR Associate, Chris Moses, LLM Chartered FCIPD, this workshop will provide practical guidance on how to conduct effective appraisals.

This workshop will cover:

• Benefits of Appraisals & potential pitfalls

• Potential Pitfalls

• Setting out the Agenda and use of Appraisal forms – choice of appraisal forms.

• Preparing the Environment – ensuring that it is conducive to an effective Appraisal

• Conducting the meeting – questioning skills

• Giving Feedback

• Action Planning – ensuring that it is effective and will be implemented.

• Informing the Council of the Outcome and Action Plan – what should remain confidential.
