what is perception and why is it important
What Is Perception, and Why Is It Important?
  • People’s behavior is based on their perception of what reality is, not on reality itself.

  • Performance Evaluations
    • Appraisals are subjective perceptions of performance.
  • Employee Effort
    • Assessment of individual effort is a subjective judgment subject to perceptual distortion and bias.
