PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL SYSTEM
REVIEW OF LITERATURE
Knowledge, skill and ability, by themselves, can not guarantee performance. The
linking factor is motivation. Performance is a vital link in Expectancy Theory. We have
already seen the linkage between effort and performance, performance and reward,
rewards and value, as perceived by people. Hence performance evaluation or appraisal
plays a vital role in “Expectancy model” of employees’ motivation. Now we would like to
find out what do we mean by the word performance. Does this word performance
means effectiveness, efficiency, or productivity or things like less number of accidents,
less absence or grievances? Effectiveness is the achievement of objectives, efficiency is
the ratio of output to input in terms of money or effort. Productivity is again number of
items produced. But there are jobs where all these factors are not explicit or quantifiable.
Sometime emphasis of these factors vary. For example, a supervisor who is a task master
may get better productivity but the workers are unhappy and non-cooperative. Elsewhere
morale and motivation of workers are very high but output in terms of numbers are less.
Does this mean the second supervisor is less effective than the first? Systematic
performance appraisal, has been adopted by various organisations, as a means of helping
the supervisors/managers to evaluate the work of their subordinates. This will also assist
the workers/juniors to come up in their career through promotion, based on their
objective assessment of performance. It also serve the purpose of knowing the
effectiveness of recruitment and selection process as well as training and development.
By proper methods, records and systematic procedure, performance appraisals assist the
supervisor/manager to become more objective and fair in their annual assessment of
performance of their sub-ordinates. This will also improve job satisfaction because it
helps the sub-ordinates to overcome their suspicion against their superiors on charges of
favouritism and discrimination. This will also improve the interpersonal relationship in
the organisation. Responsibility of performance appraisal lies with line management
assisted by personnel manager in the staff role. Many time personnel appraisal failed
because of the following:
• Lack of top management support.
• Poor training of appraisers leading to subjectivity.
• Absence of systematic process of appraisal system.
• Reluctance on the part of superiors to discuss the appraisal with
• Appraisals are not used for the purpose it is intended.
