Documentation is an essential element in a job performance evaluation system. When truly effective, documentation creates a record of employment; including performance related facts and incidences, and the steps and actions taken by the employer. This ‘record’ serves as an aid to current and future managers and HR professionals for historical perspective, performance evaluations, audits, and potential legal claims.
In this interactive session, supervisors will explore their role in creating clear, effective documentation of employee performance issues as they arise. Particular focus is placed on when and how to document an employee’s performance, how to define the line between documentation and discipline, and the performance counseling session.
Participants will practice the art of discussing performance related issues, from both a supervisors’ and the employees’ perspective.
Learning objectives of this session are:
- Recognize the supervisor’s role in documentation
- Distinguish when it is necessary to contact Human Resources
- Describe the implications of not documenting
- Employ strategies for an effective performance counseling session
