During the seminar, Kirene shared several important points on talent management with the audience, including the difference between performance appraisals and performance management and the benefits and methods of carrying out effective performance appraisals. She also pointed out the ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ of performance management, which was very well received by the audience.
