Performance Partnership Program

The Performance Partnership Program (PPP) is a performance management system that incorporates a positive approach to solving performance problems as well as recognizing and encouraging good performance.

PPP emphasizes:

• Mutual Respect
• Effective Communication
• Constructive Feedback
• Employee Responsibility
• Commitment to High Work Standards
• Positive Reinforcement

PPP is designed to correct performance deficiencies and build commitment through coaching and counseling in a respectful, non-threatening way. It eliminates the use of punishment as a means to correct problems. Ultimately, the program is intended to create an environment that is conducive to employees making positive changes in their performance and sustaining those changes.
