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.

This line manager briefing is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation for training purposes, which should be used in conjunction with the briefing. The briefing and PowerPoint presentation can be adapted for use, subject to the XpertHR terms and conditions of use.
