Employee performance is a fundamental issue for all businesses; poor people performance often means poor company performance, so it is no wonder that people management issues, such as employee appraisals are so important.
Employee appraisals ensure that not only the employee, but their manager / supervisor, are fully aware of the individual’s strengths, weaknesses and goals. As they say information is power, and so by utilising employees effectively and harnessing their own individual skill sets in the right way can only benefit your company.

Areas to consider when conducting an Employee Appraisal
- Scheduling:Timing is very important. Too often and appraisals loose their value, too few will not have enough impact – it’s a fine balance that is required
- Communication is vital: An employee appraisal is not about tripping people up. Making employees aware of how the appraisal system works, what they should expect and what they should prepare prior to the appraisal, is vital for a successful appraisal process
- Documentation: All appraisals should be documented so that there is physical evidence of what was discussed. The outcomes, future objectives and any comments made during the entire process should be clearly documented
