In this article, Lee (2013) describes the roles of HR in ensuring high performance within an organization. In order to ensure high performance, HR strategies must be aligned with the organization’s strategic mission, vision, and goals.
Choose an organization with which you are familiar and describe the alignment between the organization’s mission and goals and the existing performance management system. How do the organization’s goals relate to individual employee goals?

Based on your readings related to the relationship between organizational goals and employee goals, how would you answer this question?
