Who Will Benefit

Managers who have participated in the program report an increased appreciation for the Performance Appraisal process and greater understanding of its intentions. In addition, they note increased competency in writing appraisals and giving feedback, and increased skill in providing goal-oriented coaching and counseling on an ongoing basis. Managers also report that they can now conduct more structured appraisal discussions that involve the employee.

Employees report that they feel the appraisal process in their organizations has become more rational, accurate and fair, and appreciate being involved in the process more directly. Both managers and employees appreciate the increased clarity of what’s expected during the appraisal period.  Senior management values a system that sets standards, encourages employee involvement in the process and provides clear feedback and consistent ratings.
