“The process of evaluating the performance and assessing the development and training needs of an employee”

  • Judgmental

  • Developmental
    • To identify staff’s training needs
    • To find out what can be done for the staff to improve
  • Furnishes recognition for the meritorious aspects of the staff member’s performance
  • Alerts the staff member to the degrees of improvement needed in any weaker aspect of his/her performance
  • Prioritizes the aspects of performance in which improvement is needed
  • Helps identify systematically the roles, tasks, targets and training plans for individuals
  • Reinforce staff learning and development
  • Encourage two-way communication
  • Improve mutual understanding

From an organizational point of view

  • Goal setting and future plans are involved
  • Convey and support departmental and institutional goals
  • Appraisal can be a tool to identify individual staff needs and how they can be linked to the organizational management and future planning for training and development
  • Specific actions and plans can be suggested as to how individuals could improve

From the individual’s point of view

  • Learning needs can be identified
  • Appraisal can also be an opportunity to reflect on their accomplishments and achievements.
  • Hearing encouragement instead of judgment
  • The motivation to improve can be enhanced and job satisfaction can be increased
