Performance Management Policy

Performance Management

Iwaki America’s Performance Appraisal process is designed to evaluate and document employee job performance. This tool provides us with an opportunity to improve Human Resource decisions (e.g., merit increases, promotions, transfers, etc.) and to improve communications between management and the employee. This tool also aids us in determining training and educational needs, improve performance, set goals, and more fully develop the employee and our organization. Competency skills will be evaluated, at a minimum, at your annual review or at other times during the year.

Each employee’s performance is reviewed and documented on a performance appraisal form at least annually. This performance appraisal form can be found in the HR section on Iwaki America’s Intranet website.  Each supervisor is responsible for providing feedback on job performance, establishing job performance goals for the coming appraisal period, and addressing individual development and career needs and goals.

l  Human Resources initiates the performance appraisal process by distributing information and appropriate forms to supervisory personnel along with a schedule for completion and submission of the required information.

Poor job performance may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination.  Once all management approvals are received, performance appraisals are filed in each employee’s personnel file. During the year, supervisors and employees are encouraged to meet for interim performance reviews for coaching and feedback purposes.
