A 2008 survey found that businesses which conducted effective appraisals, followed by targeted development planning, enjoyed productivity rises of almost 3% and an 11% increase in quality of service [1].
Performance Review: Every Appraisee's Dream encourages both interviewers and appraisees to stop dreading the performance review and consider the process in a new, more positive light. The course explores simple and effective strategies to help both parties review the past, analyse the present and look to the future so that the interview becomes less confrontational and more productive.

This course is structured around a series of engaging video clips featuring Hugh Laurie. Key messages are delivered with simplicity and impact, making learning more memorable.
