Performance Management System seminar-workshop conducted

In line with the thrust of the University to institutionalize Quality Assurance mechanisms in the University and as part of the professional development of its administrators and middle-level managers, the University conducted a seminar-workshop on Performance Management System (PMS) on July 15-16, 2013 at the University’s Bulwagang Teodulfo Domingo.

The seminar-workshop was facilitated by Dr. Noel C. Racho, the Human Resource Director of Miriam College.

The first day of the seminar commenced with a discussion of “Performance Management System (PMS) as a Quality Assurance Tool.” Dr. Racho discussed the need for managing performance, the factors affecting quality performance, and the phases of performance management.  A workshop on performance planning followed.

The participants composed of administrators and middle-level supervisors were grouped for the workshop. The presentation of the output of each group was done at the later part of the afternoon. The resource speaker gave input for the improvement of the performance plans especially in the formulation of key performance indicators.

For the second day, the resource person tackled “Managing Change” and “Feedbacking.” A workshop on how to conduct feedbacking to subordinates/staff was conducted.

Dr. Racho further presented a “Performance Management System” instrument for administrators/supervisors, faculty members and non-teaching staff. The proposed PMS is a combination of the evaluation of Performance Plan and the evaluation of leadership and/or functional competencies of employees.

As a result of the seminar-workshop (dubbed “Management Development Program Series 4”), the participants were expected to formulate their respective performance plans and to echo the insights learned from the seminar to their staff so they can likewise prepare their individual performance plans that will cascade from the action plans of their offices/units.
