Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

Workplaces whether public or private, are experiencing massive changes that are challenging nominal ways of working and workforce expectations. The economic realities of ongoing financial constraints and reduced headcounts and budgets; coupled with increasing stakeholder expectations are creating a demanding environment where employees are expected to deliver results regardless of the mounting challenges.

In addition, the working styles of a new generation and new technologies have created a plugged-in and connected workforce that is engulfed in real time response requirements via instant messaging, email, phone calls, and mobile and social network access. This connectivity has not necessarily translated into increased employee engagement, motivation or improved performance. Instead, employees are becoming increasingly overwhelmed by this new work context, while also trying to seek work life balance.

However, more so now than ever, by adapting effective performance management practices, leaders in the public sector can enable employees to identify organizational priorities and realign their efforts, ultimately helping to increase overall productivity and engagement. Effective performance management practices not only help organizations continue to raise the bar, but also engage employees on the efforts and behaviors required for both personal and organizational success.

The following are Key Learning Outcomes:

  • Design and Introduce an Effective Performance Management Scheme for Public Sector Organizations
  • Implement Proven best practice approaches for aligning programs and management initiatives to an integrated performance management system for your government organization
  • Design proven strategies for gaining leadership buy-in for performance improvement initiatives via building a high performance team
