Firstly, to find out whether identifying the strengths and weaknesses of employees helps achieve performance at UWEC. Secondly, to find out whether influencing working habits of the employees helps achieve performance at UWEC. Lastly, to examine whether reviewing and retaining the promotional and other training programs leads to increased performance. The data was collected from UWEC staff member and a sample of 40 respondents was taken with 10 non-respondents.
