Vad är viktigt för chefer? : En kvalitativ fallstudie om chefers användning av planerings- och utvecklingssamtal (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Globalisation is affecting businesses worldwide. As a result of this, organisations are realising that the key to competitive advantage is not in modern technology or production; rather, it is in attracting and maintaining a committed workforce. Performance management is a widely advocated way to develop human resources. By conducting a case-study, this paper took a qualitative approach, to understand what elements of the performance appraisals are important to managers at the Organisation. The managers at the Organisation were interviewed and a thematic analysis was applied to the data. Results show that trust and honesty are important components of the performance appraisals, to managers at the Organisation. Also, the feedback the managers received from the employees was said to be the greatest contributor to the managers’ own development. The managers further requested additional support to be able to conduct successful performance appraisals, as well as increased clarity in goal- setting for employees, career development and in taking over employees.
