Performance Management: Putting Research into Action

Book Description

There has been a shift in HR from performance appraisal to performance management. A new volume in the SIOP Professional Practice Series, this book contains a broad range of performance management topics, offers recommendations grounded in research, and many examples from a variety of organizations. In addition to offering state-of-the-art descriptions of performance management needs and solutions, this book provides empirical bases for recommendations, demonstrates how performance management tracks and helps promote organizational change, and exams critical issues. This book makes an ideal resource for I/O psychologists, HR professionals, and consultants.

"In this comprehensive and timely volume, Smither and London assemble an exceptional collection of chapters on topics spanning the entire performance management process. Written by leading researchers and practitioners in the field, these chapters draw on years of research and offer a blueprint for implementing effective performance management systems in organizations. This volume is a 'must-read' for all those interested in performance management."
