Human Resource Management

An organisation is only as good as the quality of its resources and its primary resource is its people. Cognisant of this, the human resource management experts at the Centre for Professional Development and Lifelong Learning have developed a suite of courses spanning from recruitment and selection to performance management to succession planning; essentially a complete tool kit for maximising the potential, productivity and organisational commitment of one’s team members. Recognising the challenge of moving from being an independent contributor to team leader, CPDLL also offers specialised courses in Leadership and Management for new managers and new supervisors.

Conducting Effective Performance Appraisals

The performance appraisal can result in negative outcomes, especially if it is conducted without the necessary level of empathy; if no opportunity is created for clear and constructive criticism and goal setting and most importantly if the process does not empower the appraisee to move on to a place of enhanced performance and organizational commitment. This intensive course provides you with the tools to avoid the pitfalls of ineffective appraising.  It will provide a solid theoretical and highly practical foundation for conducting effective performance appraisals in various organizational settings, and position you to help your team members and juniors to reach their fullest potential.
