Performance appraisal strategies and further training possibilities. You may discuss this activity together however the work you hand in must be your own.

Task 1


"On Line Tours" has just begun running a guided overnight adventure tour in the Queenstown area. The personnel manager wants to ensure that the tours and guides provide a quality product for the guest. When a new employee is taken on at On Line Tours they are appointed a mentor to assist and educate.

This evaluation will be used to support the guide in gauging their strengths and weakness and development of further skills. Thus ensuring the continued quality of the interpretation.

Once the evaluation has been completed, the guide mentor and personnel manager will discuss its outcome and decide what further employee development may be required.
