Appraisal Skills

Staff development doesn’t just happen. It takes a conscious and concerted effort on the part of the manager to support and encourage their employees’ initiative. The performance appraisal is one of the most important ways an organisation can ensure the continued best performance practices of its employees and to promote their future development. Many managers have recognised that the skills and techniques needed for the successful appraisal can be used in their everyday operations and have become multi-skilled and better managers as a result. An effectively operated appraisal system will deliver the following benefits:

  • improved job performance through feedback and development plans
  • a consistent method of assessing performance across the organisation
  • employees have a clearer understanding performance standards
  • improved communication between employees and their mangers
