Process, Benefits & Preparation Part 1

Performance Appraisals

Why is it that organizations seem to be so worried about introducing performance appraisals?  Why do managers and employees all seem to be afraid of engaging in this process?   We believe that effective performance appraisal systems offer considerable advantages to managers, employees, and the organization as a whole.  Training in the process is essential for success. 

Performance Appraisal Process
To increase the effectiveness of the process, the following issues must be covered: 
  • Agree on the objectives
  • Monitor performance
  • Give sufficient notice
  • Prepare any necessary documentation
  • Prepare the location
  • Conduct the appraisal
  • Complete all relevant documentation
  • Implement any plans that have been agreed upon
Overall Benefits of AppraisalsFollowing a well-defined Performance-Appraisal process should result in:
  • Increased employee performance
  • Greater control of work
  • Improved motivation and commitment
  • Increased information flow
  • Better relationships within and across the organization
Until next time...
