Abstract

In Ireland at present there is an economic recession which is affecting businesses across the country. The managers and employees that remain in these businesses need to perform to a high standard to drive these companies back to success in a recession. This dissertation will focus on three particular retail companies, two of which have been experiencing falling profits as a result of the recession and one retail outlet which has been only recently started opening their retail outlets in Ireland in the midst of the recession.

Performance Management is an effective method for companies who wish to evaluate their employee's performance and develop their performance further. The main aim of this research is to analyse the theoretical literature available in regards to Performance Management and the tools used and to observe whether the retail companies in Ireland are using these beneficial tools effectively. Recommendations will then be generated to the retail industry in Ireland to further progress the Performance Management systems currently in place.
