Candidate Declaration

I confirm that:

I have not pretended the work of others is my own.
[Using the work of others as your own is a form of cheating called ‘plagiarism’. It means taking someone else’s words or ideas and trying to ‘pass them off’ as your own. This includes work downloaded from the internet.]

I have acknowledged source materials.
[If you use material in your work from sources such as books, magazines or the internet, you must make sure you clearly acknowledge this by giving proper references. Your lecturer will advise you on exactly how to do this.]

I have not worked with others or shared my work with others – unless I was taking part in group work. [Working with other candidates on a task you should be doing on your own, or sharing your work with anyone else, is a form of cheating called ‘collusion’. This includes giving assistance to, or lending materials to, another candidate.]

I have checked the contents of my work carefully before submitting it for marking. [Make sure that you check all of your work carefully to ensure that everything you are submitting is your own work and that source materials are properly acknowledged.]

Failure to comply with the provisions of the above declaration may lead to penalties under the Plagiarism & Cheating (malpractice) Learners guide up to and including withdrawal from the unit.

A) Produce a report in which you:

1. Explain the main objectives of performance management review procedures 2. Explain the advantages and disadvantages of at least three different systems for managing individual performance 3.

Additionally, you are required to provide Jo and Claire with: B)
1. Guidelines for the Operations Managers to follow when undertaking Performance Reviews. You must make sure that these guidelines follow good practice and current legislation and you should identify which good practice and legislation they are based on, as this will give the Managers confidence in what they are using.

Jo and Claire are busy people so they would like you to write a concise report (no more than 750 words in length). Task B should be provided in a format so that the Operations Managers can use it right away.

As Jo and Claire are used to working with detailed briefs they have provided details of what they expect to have presented to them:
