Assessing employees’ achievements and shortcomings—performance evaluation—can be a daunting task for managers and HR professionals. In addition to acknowledging and applauding achievements, performance evaluations force managers and HR professionals to confront employees about problems and issues. This requires a great deal of assertiveness, empathy, and tact but is ultimately very beneficial to the success of individual employees and organizations as a whole. Conducting performance assessments, communicating their results, and addressing problems and acknowledging successes helps employees meet expectations and take responsibility for self-improvement.
In this Discussion, you will examine three scenarios that will allow you to describe problems of performance and behavior. You also will assess the actions of the characters in the scenarios. Finally, you will formulate an HR strategy to address each case.

Week 5 Discussion
Performance evaluations are not the only way to achieve employee and organizational development (Lussier & Hendon, 2018). A more proactive way of improving performance is to identify and work toward specific goals. One of the most popular methods of targeting goals is the SMART method, a mnemonic for the elements of effective goal setting. This method mandates the identification of goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time bound (Stahl, 2018).
In this Assignment, you will select a job position within a healthcare institution. You will develop SMART goals for the job position of your choice. You also will describe strategies for professional development for your selected job position.
