Performance comes from the verb ‘to perform’. ‘To perform’ means to carry out or to do something. You can ‘perform’ a task. You can also ‘perform’ in a play which is where you are pretending to be another person.

Performance in the workplace means how well you can do a job. It also means how well can you do your job so that your employer is satisfied, and the company benefits from your work. If you do not perform well at work, then the employer may not want you to be working there. If you do perform your job well then that is good for both you and the employer.
