Performance Appraisal: Burden or Tool for Development
It is time for mid-year performance appraisals at EconTechnology, a high-tech company in Philadephia, Pennsylvania. Phyllis Johnson (Director of the Economic Analysts Group) and Ken Nakamura (one of Phyllis's direct reports) are meeting today to discuss Ken's performance review.
Each EconTechnology employee has a clear job description. Formal appraisals are based on goals and duties the employees and managers identified at the beginning of the year. Mid-year and end-of-year performance reviews provide a feedback platform to discuss employee development and continuous improvement.
Employees complete and submit to the manager a self-assessment one week prior to each review session. The manager produces a mid-year and end-of-year summary of each performance appraisal session. Both the employee and manager rank the employee's general performance as unacceptable, acceptable, good, very good, or outstanding.
