The author emphasizes the importance of performance management in bridging the gap between employers and employees. He takes into account a recent Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) poll about the rising interest in performance management to illustrate how essential it is for managers to discuss past and current employee performances and using it as a constructive disciplinary measure. He concludes that successful organisations need to enable performance management as part of its mantra.
