Today's rapidly changing business world requires successful human resources managers and financial executives to stay informed. With helpful topics like compensation management, employee retention and talent ...
John D. Ryan's insight:

Informal performance reviews should be used by every manager as both a motivational and teaching tool. The completion of a successful project (on time, under budget, successful release to market) may be a huge boost to the company but each individuals impact on the project and on co-workers should be immediately reviewed and corrective action (as required) proposed.
