Motivated employees with the help of employee appraisal training

The aim of the appraisal interview seminar is to enable people with personnel responsibility, by means of numerous exercises, to conduct their discussion occasions in an appreciative and employee-oriented manner. They will be enabled to choose an appropriate discussion format and setting at all times so that employees always feel comfortable and open during discussions. In such an atmosphere, recognition but also criticism can be received and equally felt as motivating. As a result, employees, regardless of the situations, will perceive the dialogue as a valuable impulse for their professional development.

What is the structure of an appraisal interview?

  1. Opening the discussion and creating an atmosphere
  2. Stating the topic and goal
  3. Communicating perceptions
  4. Active listening and steering the conversation
  5. Raising the issue
  6. Signalling fairness and willingness to cooperate
  7. Making suggestions
