"Making Employee Reviews Meaningful"

It's that time again. Employee reviews are due. Same old story. Fill out a meaningless form that no one will read but HR requires it. Employees distrust them. Supervisors hate wasting time completing them. Is there really any value to this process?

The operative word here is "meaningful". Developing strategies to help your employee grow in his position not only aids his professional development but strengthens the entire department.

The speakers in this session will share their expertise and experiences in developing and implementing meaningful employee reviews. Each brings a unique perspective to the discussion. Both public and private sector human resource professionals join public works and city management staff members in presenting this opportunity for you and your staff to ask questions and discuss ways to improve your own employee review process.
