Designing Appraisal Forms
The process by which a manager or consultant
(1) Examines and evaluates an employee’s work behavior by comparing it with preset standards
(2) Documents the results of the comparison
(3) Uses the results to provide feedback to the employee to show where improvements are needed and why.
Performance appraisals are employed to determine who needs what training, and who will be promoted, demoted, retained, or fired.
