We have now closed our online survey 'Implementing Performance Appraisals' and have a report available in PDF format; if you would like a copy then just email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
63% complete performance appraisals on paper
82% report lack of senior management buy-in and employee engagement as primary obstacles to an effective process
42% generate a grade for 'Performance Related Pay' purposes
Line Manager skills noted as being crucial for success; comments include:
Line managers taking more time and engaging in conversations that are meaningful
Having all supervisors/managers trained on how to perform appraisals properly and with the necessary courage to give honest performance feedback
Decent ongoing conversation between line manager and staff - daily, in supervision meetings, in appraisal
It's all interesting stuff, and particularly so we feel when there is much debate about the value of performance appraisals; should we scrap them as some people advocate or should we look to engage people in the process, support them with skills training, and get back to basics in having meaningful conversations?
