  2. Providing required training and resources and assisting the employees in accomplishment of desired goals and objectives;
  3. Ensuring that employees are provided with regular feedback; and
  4. Matching organizational objectives with job descriptions.

2. Manager Level

  1. Providing die employees with a chance to participate in goal setting exercise with a view of improving goal ownership and accountability standards;
  2. Defining and clarifying performance measures used for measuring employee’s performance in achieving the set goals and objectives;
  3. Providing training as and when required to the employee so as to enable him to perform as expected; and
  4. Providing regular ‘on-the-job’ feedback.

3) Employee Level
