The Performance Review – Making It Work For Employers Not Lawyers
Thursday, August 23, 2012  | 5:00pm - 7:30pm | Cobb Galleria Centre

Performance appraisals have long been favorite targets for employees' attorneys. But very often they aren't much good for anything else, such as … improving performance. This doesn’t have to be so. Drawing on his best practices research for SHRM (reflected in his June 2011 HR Magazine article), Ogletree Deakins's Jathan Janove will show you what some prudent employers have done to make performance reviews good for their employees - and bad for their employees’ lawyers. You will learn how to make performance reviews give you a positive ROI ... instead of making you vulnerable to claims.

Principal Learning Objectives:
1.  How to structure performance reviews to ensure that effective feedback is given.
2.  What training to give supervisors to ensure the program’s success.
3.  What steps to take to prevent performance reviews from being used against you.
