team appraisals can sometimes be unjust, because one or two people could possibly slack when it comes to performing their job and make the team look bad. The organization wants all employee’s to benefit from the great effort that they put into performing their job; therefore they should be evaluated separately. A generic appraisal form for each employee seems to be fair it shows each employee his/her weakness and strengths allowing room for growth if needed(Fallon & McConnell 2007;
Many employers now evaluate the applicant’s credit report, although it does the employer no good knowing what companies you have or have not paid it tells them a whole lot about how responsible the person is; which is one of the most essential skills needed to be successful in today’s workforce. In my opinion, the most ideal employee will have the skills of being punctual, honest, responsible, kind, being able to work well with others, and being willing to further their education. They will also have the knowledge of knowing when to use their resources and where to find the information needed, and to not be fearful of the consequences when they make a mistake and being honest enough to verbalize it. The skill of being punctual speaks for itself when working any job it is important that you are clocked in and ready to work when you shift starts. Not only because you have a job of which, is organized based on your scheduled hours, but also for the respect of your co- workers.
Employee Motivation Theory Often times companies that struggle with the relationship between the employees and the goals of the organization; sometimes the moral of its employee is thread that sets the relationship apart. Managers have made several failed attempts to establish that relationship with the employee to knit them together with the goals of the organization. Therefore, the company level of accomplishments is diminished. A good manager has learned good people skills, and often times he/she is able to motivate their employees to increase their output. It is important to be able to penetrate any barriers that the employee may have as a defense mechanism.

The owner could also implement an employee recognition program, such as employee of the month with a plaque in the lobby and those employees who have earned employee of the month displayed and also receive a day off in that same month. Employees have the need to feel valued and appreciated in the workplace and in applying incentives, rewards,
McClelland and vroom-This theory is simple and it says people are motivated depending on the outcome. This means if an employee doesn’t like the outcome the task is going to produce, then he or she won’t want to complete the task at hand. This theory says to relate rewards to the performance and it is something that the employee would want. This theory says that if an employee is kept happy then the employee will be motivated to work harder. Tesco would not use this method but parts of it such as get Tesco employee rewards that relate to them and their performance Maslow-This theory says that people’s needs have to be met first before an employer can get the best out of their employees.

According to, the Adams Equity Theory, what motivates people working within an organization is the employee’s perception of equitability.

What would be your overall aims when counselling an underperforming employee? Describe the steps you would work through to achieve these objectives. The overall aim when counselling an underperforming employee is to restore job performance to a satisfactory level by identifying the unsatisfactory behaviours, mutually establishing goals for improvement, and seeking agreement from the employee on suitable action to overcome those problems. Counselling will occur either because your staff member approaches you to seek help, or because you approach the staff member due to problems you have noticed in his or her work performance. As soon as you have identified that an employee is under-performing, do not wait for things to go from bad to worse.
