Appraisal is a two-headed process of looking backwards to analyse
past job performance, and looking forward into the future with a view to
improving future performance.
The overall objective of an effective appraisal scheme
should be to help each employee to maximise his or her job performance for the
joint benefit of the employee and the organisation.
This line manager briefing
aims to help line managers to understand the processes involved in conducting
effective appraisals. It is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation for training purposes.
