    You have been working for the internet matchmaking company, People, people who need people.com . In recent months the company has been forced to downsize. This downsizing has resulted in numerous layoffs. In order to select the employees who would be laid off management reviewed past performance appraisals and selected those individuals with poor appraisals as the first people to be let go.

    As a result of this, three former employees have sued the company. Their complaint is that the performance appraisals did not accurately reflect their work and instead were based on inaccurate interpretations of work performance by the managers who completed the reviews. One employee has already won his case and the two others are still in court.

    As the Director of Human Resources for this organization you have decided that something needs to be done to minimize these issues in the future. After reviewing the performance review process your conclusion is that the problem is with the managers. They are not accurately measuring the performance of the employees. They need to be trained on the proper ways to complete the performance reviews.

    To prepare for this training, research possible problems that are prone to occur in performance reviews. You may use your text, the full-text database in the Cybrary or other internet resources. Create a detailed training proposal that incorporates all of the following:

    List and describe 4-6 common problems that occur when managers complete performance reviews. The performance review problems you discuss should relate to the concepts discussed in the Unit 1 assigned reading. Explain the concept and explain how it applies to the current situation. Provide suggestions for supervisors on how to eliminate or reduce these problems.

    Thank you!
