In the hospitality industry it is important to understand and be aware of cultural differences within the work place. This paper will discuss the importance of employee relationship management by reviewing relevant literature and will highlight certain areas such as communications and leadership styles. This will help determine the best strategies to decrease the amount of turnovers in employment as well as retaining workers in a hospitality organisation.
Employee relationship management is a term that covers a broad range of topics on the behaviour and interaction in the work place. This can span from relationships with workers to attract and retain employees. Common measure of this employee relationship management includes time to hire, turnover and employee satisfaction (O’Leary, 2011). “Managing Performance Through the Manager-employee Relationship” (Amarjit, 1989) focuses on how performance management is implemented and viewed. So instead of trying to improve the effectiveness of the performance of management by changing the system, they focused on the manager-employee communication and aspects of the manager-employee relationship. The article states that performance management in general needed improving (O’Leary, 2011), and was recommended that the most effective way to improve this was if the organisation is characterized by cultural feedback (Amarjit, 1989). It was said by (Fabian, 1971) that managers avoid performance management activities and providing feedback
Performance management system makes a clear link between the performance and compensation, and allows the employees to understand the areas which need to be improved and directs them to appropriate training opportunities to enable improvement in performance to take place. Joseph Martocchio says, “Work with line managers to design the performance appraisal plan which best fits the specific duties and responsibilities of particular roles” (Martocchio, 2011). Compensation and reward decisions are likely to be arbitrary in the absence of a good performance management system. In short, performance management is a key component of talent management in organizations. It allows assessing the current talent and making predictions
Performance management is a process which should happen on a continuous cycle. Managers must communicate with employees on a regular basis, ensuring they do not limit discussion to an annual appraisal meeting.

After the performing the research, the information should be used to establish the appropriate performance management specialized for the organization. In addition, an effective performance management system should align
Performance management is a tool that managers use to ensure that their companies remain at the top of their competitive edge. The Chartered Institute for Personnel Development (CIPD, 2008), defines performance management as a method by which individuals and teams are managed in a way that achieves high performance at an organisational level. The individuals within the organisation share an understanding of the achievement goals of the organisation. In order to achieve this, a general strategy is created, with each individual within the organisation understanding his or her role and requirements within such a strategy
A vital component of increasing staff is a comprehensive and well-structured performance management system. Its intention is to improve the overall organisation, team and individual performances. The lack of this process can result in employee confusion which is brought on when managers aren’t consistent on giving feedback/ messages to employees. Employees can feel discouraged resulting in low productivity due to the fact that employee’s feelings turn to hopeless for managers aren’t monitoring their performance, (Lotich, 2014). Within Ride’n’Rinse, the performance management system will involve improvement of performance, the improvement of teams and individuals and behaviour management in order to allow productive working relationships.

There are so many focuses or themes that I might construct on my individual paper on ‘Developing high performance working’. One of them is functions of performance management; this will include strategic, administrative and the developmental. According to (Baron and Armstrong, 1998 cited in Bloisi, 2007:254), they “emphasise and integrated nature of performance management”. The second one is the administrative function; several organisations nowadays use performance management to evaluate employees about their salaries, retentions, redundancies and individual performance. Lastly, the developmental function should enable managers to identify where employees are not performing well and how they can improve it. Additionally, I will be explaining the performance appraisal and how does it process. According to (Bloisi, 2007:259), performance appraisal is the “process of measuring and evaluating employees’ performance. It can be a useful tool for employee development”. Dealing with poor performance is another topic that I will include in my individual paper; managers have to identify employees with poor performance, so they can take an action on them. Lastly, I will include performance management and how managers can administrate performance within the
As stated by Peter F. Drucker, “Management is about human beings. Its task is to make people capable of joint performance, to make their strengths effective and their weaknesses irrelevant.” Performance management is essential to achieving an organization 's mission statement and business goals, and also in attracting, retaining, and motivating qualified employees. There are many benefits and reasons why an organization should execute a performance management system. Performance appraisals establish the basis for qualifying, recognizing, and rewarding employee contributions. In this paper, I will discuss what performance management is, the problems with the current performance management system at my organization, how other organizations have succeeded in their performance management system and how I would advise management at my current organization to improve our performance management system.

Performance management is the process of planning work assignments, setting expectations, monitoring processes, rating performance, and rewarding performance. Performance management systems are used by organizations to identify, measure, and develop the performance of individuals and teams. The goal of an effective performance management system is to strategically align employee performance with company goals and objectives (Smither & London, 2009). In order to achieve optimal performance, organizations are tasked with implementing innovative solutions that ensure performance management systems that deliver real results and improve performance (MacMillan, 2015). Organizational leaders are responsible for understanding the performance management system in order to focus on employee efforts that will help in achieving both individual and organizational goals (Opm.gov).
