Labor Relations & Performance Management

Respond to the following scenario with your thoughts, ideas, and comments.
A structured performance management strategy is necessary at SaharaOasis. As part of this strategy, a new performance appraisal tool needs to be developed for warehouse associates, as well as the management staff. Your recommendation must be presented to the vice president (VP) of human resources in a PowerPoint presentation for her review.
Using Bloomberg Businessweek B-School Connection resources, research performance management and create a slide presentation that addresses the following:
Review the different performance appraisal tools, and make a recommendation for a tool to be used with warehouse associates and a tool to be used with management personnel.
Why did you choose the tools that you did? What impact will they have on the organization’s HR information systems (Internet, telecommunications and networks, software, hardware, data, simulations, e-learning)?
How would the tools be introduced in the work environment?
What role will these tools play in performance management?
What role do they play in avoiding litigation?
How would you assess the effectiveness of the tools?
