Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Coens (a labor attorney) and Jenkins (a human resources consultant) argue that the process of performance appraisal frustrates most employees and managers who use it. Rather than modifying this process, they offer suggestions on how to replace performance appraisals with other approaches that emphasize teamwork, empowerment, and spirituality. Individual chapters focus on five key functions of appraisal<-->coaching, feedback, development, compensation, and legal documentation<-->and present alternative ways to meet these objectives. Case studies are used to illustrate the implementation of these new approaches. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
