Human Resources Management Service

Purpose of appraisal

  • Improving the quality of servicesprovided to the citizens of Serbia by civil servants;

  • Creating a proper basis for deciding aboutstatus matters concerning civil servants (promotion, but also termination of employment);

  • Providing material for human resource management in a wider perspective (staff development, training/professional development programmes, etc).

Legal framework

  • The Law on Civil Servants(in force since 1 July 2006)

    • The Regulation on the Appraisal of Civil Servants(in force since 1 July 2006)

  • The Law on Salaries of Civil Servants and General Service Employees (in force since 1 January 2007)


  • What is appraised:

    • 1. results achieved in performing tasks of a post and meeting defined objectives (50%)

    • 2. independence, creativity, initiative, precision and diligence, quality of cooperation with others, additional criteria (50%)

  • By whom is the appraisal conducted:

    • immediate superior

  • Types of marks:

    • unsatisfactory, satisfactory, good, distinction, exceptional distinction

  • Six main steps of the annual appraisal procedure

    • Setting work objectives (maximum 5)

    • Evaluator completes the Appraisal Report

    • Appraisal interview

    • Counter signature

    • Personnel unit prepares a proposal of a decision about the mark

    • Decision of the manager

    The consequences of the appraisal

    • Two types of consequences:

      • the “hard” ones: the possibility of promotion (to a higher grade or to a managerial post), pay rise (a higher pay step), termination of employment

      • the “soft” ones: measures for career development; training and professional development

    • Dealing with exceptional civil servants

    • Dealing with the “unsatisfactory” ones

    Technical support

    • Project: “Technical Assistance for the Preparation and Implementation of Administrative Legislation – Phases 1 and 2 – Republic of Serbia”, financed by the European Agency for Reconstruction

      • Regulation on the Appraisal of Civil Servants

      • Appraisal of Civil Servants Manual (with instructions on how to conduct the appraisal interview)

      • Training events for evaluators

    Training events for evaluators and personnel units

    • The purpose and meaning of appraisal

    • The link between individual work objectives and organizational objectives

    • Criteria (competencies) for appraisal and establishing standards in appraisal

    • Appraisal interview – dialogue between the evaluator and the appraisee

    • Planning relevant training activities

    The result of intensive training

    • The resistance to objective-based planning is constantly decreasing

    • Writing work objectives is easier and they are increasingly comprehensive

    • When possible, individual objectives are linked to strategic objectives

    • Providing evidence with marks for the other criteria is easier, the evidence being more meaningful

    • The number of people specifying necessary training events is growing and these events are increasingly aimed at improving the successfulness of individuals

    • Exceptional distinction: 20-25%, Distinction: 42-47%, Good: 25-30%

    There are still difficulties

    • in setting work objectives for tasks which do not depend on strategic objectives

    • in specifying indicators of behaviour which is appraised in relation to the requirements of a post

    • in corroborating marks with sufficiently strong evidence

    • tendency to give the highest marks

    New needs

    • Identifying competencies necessary for effective performance in a post

    • Planning the development of civil servants by means of targeted training events

    • Perceiving, planning and realizing the career path of civil servants (either horizontally or vertically)

    • Reviewing the meaningfulness of applying the same approach to appraisal to all types of posts
