Deciding on a Performance Appraisal System

The first step you need to take after you've decided either to introduce a performance appraisal system in your company or to change your current one is determining which kind of system is best for your company. All performance appraisal systems are driven by the same objective: to establish a systematic way of evaluating performance, providing constructive feedback, and enabling employees to continually improve their performance.

The basic ingredients in all systems are pretty much the same: setting performance criteria, developing tracking and documenting procedures, determining which areas should be measured quantitatively, and deciding how the information is to be communicated to employees. Where the different methods vary is in the following areas:

  • The degree to which employees are involved in establishing performance evaluation criteria
  • How employee performance is tracked and documented
  • How performance is rated and how it's aligned with corporate priorities, objectives, and goals
  • The specific types of appraisal tools used - in some cases, for example, certain approaches are more appropriate for evaluating managers and professionals than other employees
  • The amount of time and effort required to implement the process
  • How the results of the appraisal are integrated into other management or HR functions
  • How the actual appraisal session is conducted
