About the Performance Management Policy template

This policy template is a sample performance policy that makes it easy for you to create or re-write your policy in minutes. It’s easy to hear the term “performance management policy” and picture a list of rules and procedures that is only dug out of storage when someone needs disciplining. A document of little relevance to most employees, with limited uses, but one the organisation still needs to spend resources reviewing and maintaining each year. Make the change to a relevant, proactive, and accessible performance policy that will provide value to your team members.

How does this policy help HR managers and HR leaders?

Firstly it will save time! How fabulous. It will also help create clarity for your team. Why? This policy makes clear how performance in your organisation works. It is a simple yet effective tool for nurturing everyone’s understanding of organisational goals and how their day-to-day tasks contribute to them. Connecting the dots between these goals and outlining the framework helps your team have a clear understanding of what's expected of them.

When to use this policy

While this policy can be kept on your intranet, it is a valuable tool to review during the employees first thirty days. This could be accomplished through a meeting with the team leader or via an introductory video from either the CEO or your HR leader. It can also be used in the early phases of a performance improvement plan. It's helpful to ensure that people at risk of poor performance, understand how the performance process works. This discussion can give them an opportunity to highlight any opportunities to improve the practices in their team. This early check point can remove misunderstandings at the right point in the process.
