This communications pack provides materials to help human resources and communications colleagues promote the free people performance management (PPM) toolkit within their organisation.

Introduction

We would encourage you to incorporate the PPM toolkit into your induction and training processes for line managers. This will help them to gain a better understanding of how the toolkit can be applied to day-to-day management situations.

These communications resources have been designed to help you spread the word in your organisation about the popular People Performance Management toolkit.

The free online toolkit provides practical support to help create confident and effective people managers. It is aimed at managers working at all levels across NHS and social care settings to help them effectively deal with a range of performance management challenges, from how to manage underperforming staff, review performance and give constructive feedback, to supporting and encouraging team members who are high achieving.

The toolkit is designed to be interactive and to allow managers to find the information relevant to them, quickly and easily and develop their own style of management, suited to them and their staff.
