At the end of 2018, the unemployment rate in the Czech Republic was at its minimum for the last twenty years and the same applies within the framework of the EU member countries. Although being favourable in social terms, for companies this situation brings about large difficulties because they are unable to obtain qualified labour force, while costs connected with its finding and maintaining grow rapidly. For these reasons, company managers are compelled to pay an ever-increasing attention as to how the employees are utilised. Reciprocally to the growing costs in this manufacturing factor, they require also a growth in its outcome, in this case, the productivity of labour. The best and only complex instrument for the labour productivity growth is the systematic performance management (PM). In the sphere of the management of human resources, a number of activities are in place and some of them, in terms of labour productivity less valuable, divert the attention from the major personal actions. Therefore, this paper is focused to the delineation of core activities in the performance management and links among them in the sphere of metallurgy. In the sphere of metallurgy, there is a long-standing lack of qualified labour force, and hence the systematic performance management of human resources is of primary importance.Keywords: HR, Performance Management, Personal Activities
