Discover the optimum evaluation methods for your organization. For decades, the Performance Review has been a standard tool in evaluating staff. Although every institution has its own protocol and devotes varying amounts of energy to the process, the scenario is much the same: set goals, accomplish goals, review goals and start all over again.

How can libraries best monitor performance? What review format is the most meaningful for both staff and management? This workshop will look at traditional performance review practices as well as those "outside the box." A panel of peers will discuss best practices, both traditional and alternative.
