Explain the purpose of performance management and describe how the schools approach may be influenced by motivational theory? Performance management examines how and why employees are appraised. All managers are properly trained how to do it. The jobholder's immediate superior carries out performance appraisals. The person who appraises is called the appraiser and the person being appraised is the appraisee. The usual procedure is the appraiser writes an appraisal report of the appraisee, which includes an examination of the strengths and weakness of the employee, the advise given to the employee in relation to the future performance this includes praise for strengths and helpful criticism. Also an action plan for the next few months should be planned. The appraiser discusses this with the appraisee. This could be as follows: > An open appraisal where the appraisee can discuss the appraisal. > Two-way appraisal where the appraisee does an appraisal of himself or herself. > 360-degree appraisal this is when the appraisee is appraised by all the people they deal with. ...read more.


Haydons Performance management Haydon is committed to excellence in a caring community at Haydon they are committed to performance management to develop all staff and improve teaching and to raise standards of achievements for all children.

Frederick Hertzberg theory Haydons employees are motivated by Satisfiers and hygiene factors, which improve their performance. Hertzberg's key point was that hygiene factors do not motivate but it they are not very good then the satisfiers will not motivate either. If this happened at Haydon the performance of employees will go down so Haydon need to make sure that their employees get good hygiene so they are motivated to do their job and want to improve and develop. It is Haydons performance management's job to make sure the hygiene is right. I think the Abraham Maslow theory is the best for Haydon as it can be assessed easily by performance appraisals so Haydon know what training they need to give an employee to move them up the hierarchy by giving goals for the employer to achieve more at Haydon. But I also think that Haydon have to use Hertzberg's theory as if the hygiene is poor then the workers will be de-motivated and the performance of the school will go down so the hygiene needs to be good enough to keep the employees motivated.
