    • Employee development

what makes good performance appraisal
What Makes Good Performance Appraisal?
  • PA should be based on job performance alone
  • PA also should be an ongoing process, not a once-a-year ritual
  • 6 characteristics of effective PA
    • Subordinate participation
    • Subordinate acceptance
    • Goal setting
    • Discussing problems with performance
    • Minimal criticism (defensiveness)
    • Subordinate voice
defining performance
Defining Performance
  • Objective vs. subjective
  • What can the individual control?
  • Job related vs. organization related behaviors
  • Dimensions to rate on
who evaluates performance
Who Evaluates Performance?
  • Supervisor
  • Self
  • Subordinate
  • Peers
  • Customers
appraisal formats
Appraisal Formats
  • Trait ratings
  • Rankings
  • Outcome measures
  • Dimensional scales
  • BARS
  • MBO
trait ratings
Trait Ratings
  • Traits (i.e., “industrious”) mean different things to different people
    • Lack of reliability
  • Not specific enough for useful feedback
    • What, specifically, does the employee need to do to be “industrious”?
  • Still used, though...... It’s quick and easy, and appealing to managers (“looks” good)
rankings and forced distribution
Rankings and Forced Distribution
  • Currently popular
    • Managers required to rate a certain proportion of employees in each category
    • General Electric (“Rank-and-Yank”)
  • However….
    • All employees may be equally good or bad, so forced distribution isn't the answer
    • May be comparing apples and oranges, if employees in different jobs
    • No anchor points (The employee on the bottom of the list may be satisfactory, but all of the others are simply better)
    • Not specific enough, in terms of areas and specific behavior, for useful feedback
outcome measures
Outcome Measures
  • Nothing wrong with measuring outcomes..…
  • Need to chose correct outcomes
  • Focus on results not always helpful in showing employees what to do to get results
  • Outcomes may not be under employee’s control
behaviorally anchored rating scales bars
Behaviorally Anchored Rating Scales (BARS)
  • Format:
    • Scales for different areas or dimensions (usually 8-10 scales per job)
    • Each scale has 9 points or levels
    • At least three levels are anchored or defined with representative behaviors, describing superior, average, and below average levels of performance
  • The supervisor:
    • Responds to the question “This is the type of employee who would...”
    • Rates the employee from 9 (best) to 1 (worst), for each scale
management by objectives mbo
Management by Objectives (MBO)
  • About goals
    • Goals must be challenging, yet reachable
    • Must have meaningful employee participation
  • Three steps in process:
    • Employee and manager agree on goals
    • Progress toward goals monitored during appraisal period
    • At end of period, employee and supervisor meet again to determine if goals met
systematic problems with performance appraisal
Systematic Problems With Performance Appraisal
  • No performance appraisal or performance appraisal as a ritual only
  • Lack of top management support for performance appraisal or for meaningful appraisal
  • Appraisal should be (but too often isn’t) an ongoing process of feedback
problems in the appraisal interview
Problems in the Appraisal Interview
  • Disagreement (between employee and manager)
  • Defensiveness (when employee is given bad news in a non-constructive manner)
  • Manager’s unwillingness to confront problem employees
  • One-way communication (top-down only; employee has no opportunity to respond)
rater errors i
Rater Errors (I)
  • Systematic errors/biases; normally, rater is unaware of these
  • Errors in rating process
    • Irrelevant information
  • Errors in observation
    • Stereotypes
    • Employee similar/not similar to rater
    • Pattern of performance (improve/decline)
    • Variability of performance
rater errors ii
Rater Errors (II)
  • Errors in storage and recall
    • Trait recall
    • Memory decay
  • Errors in actual evaluation
    • Political goals
    • Forced distribution/limited pot of money
    • Fear of confronting problem employees
    • Desire to look good

The Seven Deadly Sins

  • Contrast Error
  • First and Last Impressions
  • Halo Effect
  • Stereotyping
  • “Similar-to-Me Effect”
  • Central Tendency Error
  • Negative and Positive Leniency
360 appraisal
360º Appraisal
  • Also called “multisource feedback”
  • Gather information on performance from multiple sources
    • Supervisor
    • Peers
    • Subordinates
    • Self
    • Customers
