CareerWise Recruitment sponsor CIPD Business Breakfast at the Maryborough Hotel
The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development Southern Region began their 2014 events programme with a recent business breakfast sponsored by CareerWise Recruitment to hear Fergus Barry, Managing Partner of Fergus Barry and Associates share his insights into Performance Management in Ireland.
‘Management of Performance’
Fergus highlighted that the concept is only truly successful when it is about the ‘Management of Performance’ and not just a system or procedure of ‘Performance Management’. The focus for successful ‘Management of Performance’ is on the key dialogues about performance that take place between the line manager and the performer. He identified a world-class approach to the delivery of these dialogues and emphasised the need for simplicity in getting it right. He highlighted the role of line management, HR and individual employees in the process. He also spoke of the basic requirement for assertiveness in management and the building of managerial confidence and competence to manage real performance development.
“We often help organisations to review their performance management strategy as part of their overall business plan and to create a high performance workforce. We can advise them on how to create a work environment in which employees are qualified to perform to the best of their abilities”.
Ken Murphy, Director of CareerWise Recruitment and event sponsor
Liam Lenihan, Chairman, CIPD Southern Region stated;
“We recently surveyed our members and discovered that the area of performance management is of huge interest to all HR practitioners. Fergus Barry is a champion of Strategic HRM in Ireland with immense expertise in Irish employment and industrial relations and practice. This morning he offered advice, guidance and practical support on how we can develop, manage, motivate, rate and reward our people to perform at their best. Our thanks to CareerWise Recruitment for their continued support of our business events”.
