Considerations for Increasing Effectiveness of Self-Appraisal: Research Project Summary for Clemson University Human Resource Development 880 Research Concept and Skills

Published in: Education, Business, Technology
  • Very nice job Tracy! You had some awesome points and would be very useful if put into a regular program. Problem is many times employees and managers get caught up in their fast pace world and forget about the little things that matter the most. Great topic and information though!
