When managers use a planned, structured approach to monitoring performance they gather the information they need to give feedback which is accurate, objective and balanced – the type of feedback that staff members tell us they want more of, because they find it constructive and motivational, and which improves performance. Reviewing performance – having a focused, in- depth discussion with the staff member – provides a platform from which to address a whole range of motivational needs including;
i) the staff members self-assessment
ii) giving and receiving feedback
iii) identifying development needs and
iv) discussing job satisfaction.
