WORKSHOP OVERVIEW
 

Engaging in great performance appraisals and providing reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities can be challenging for all levels of managers. Many managers dislike giving formal feedback and are reluctant to do it, especially with an employee who has a known disability. However, research has shown that honest, timely, and well-documented performance appraisals can improve performance for the individual and the organization. In addition, they give managers the opportunity to determine, with the employee's input, if a reasonable accommodation may be needed to improve performance. It is a win-win for the organization and for the employee since you are able to keep that employee and reduce turnover.

 

Please join us for this informative and interactive session to learn how to improve your performance appraisals, reduce the stress in the process, avoid legal pitfalls, and provide reasonable accommodations for your valuable employees who have a disability.

 

Objectives:

 

Through this training you will...

  • Identify ways to improve your performance appraisals for individuals with a disability in order to provide a well-documented review of an individual's performance in terms of essential job functions, expectations and objectives;
  • Learn ways to avoid misunderstandings and confusion through good performance management;
  • Identify ways to incorporate reasonable accommodations into your performance appraisal process with greater confidence;
  • Learn how to use a process for on-going, systematic performance and retain qualified employees with disabilities.
