The way in which an organisation defines, assesses and rewards employee performance has implications for its ability to attract, motivate and retain employees. This subject uses theory and research to identify practical insights into systems for assessing employee performance and linking performance to pay outcomes. The subject will also address contemporary issues such as the employee and supervisor gender and transparency on the implementation and effectiveness of performance and reward management practices.

Intended learning outcomes

On successful completion of this subject, students should be able to:

  • Explain and critically evaluate systems for assessing and rewarding employee performance
  • Apply theory and research to individual problems in case studies
  • Understand the implications of different performance and reward management systems from the perspective of employees, supervisors and HR professionals

Generic skills

  • Critical thinking, which should be fostered by the application of theories relevant to performance management systems and to contemporary organisational practice
  • Problem solving, which should be developed by assignments that will require students to apply principles discussed in lectures and readings to case study situations
  • Oral and written communication, which should be developed in class discussion and in preparation of group assignments
