Workplace assessment or “appraisal” is the process of looking back to analyse past job performance, and looking forward 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.
Where an employee is underperforming, the employer should address the performance issues promptly.
