INTRODUCTION TO HUMAN RESOURCE

There is a human tendency to make judgments about others who are around us and also about
oneself. It seems appraisal is both inevitable and universal. In the absences of a carefully
structured system of appraisal, people will tend to judge the work performances of other,
including subordinates, naturally, informally and arbitrarily. However the human inclination
to judge can create serious motivational, ethical and legal problems in the work place.
Without a structured appraisal system there is little chance of ensuring that the judgment
made will be lawful, fair, defensible and accurate. Hence there is need for a systematic
performance appraisal to judge the performance of individual in any sector.

Performance appraisal is a systematic evaluation of an individual employee with respect to


his performance on the job and his potential for development. Performance is carrying out the
work entrusted by the employed directly or through his agents. The management expects all
the employees to perform this specified work for the payments it makes.

Once the work is entrusted to the employee, it is necessary to measure the performance to
see;
Whether the employee has done the work entrusted to him in the way it was expected.
Whether there is any wastage in tears of time, money, energy, skill etc.
Whether the same work could have been done in a better way.
In the process, whether the employee has equipped himself with his responsibilities.

Normally it is measured by a third party or the immediate higher officer. This method of
measuring the work is called appraisal. Unless the work is carried out in the proper way, the
employer will lose the employees. It is a formal exercise in a documented form in which
Page 9 of 16

organization makes an evaluation of its employees in terms of his contributions made towards
achieving organizational objectives. It also evaluates further personal strengths and
weaknesses in terms of attributes and behaviors demonstrated for meeting whatever
objectives the organization may consider relevant.

According to Heyel, Performance Appraisal is the process of evaluating the performance


and qualification of the employees in terms of the requirements of the job for which he is
employed

CONCLUSION

behavior on jobs, and his or her potential for future performance. Appraisal has several

Performance appraisal is systematic and objective way of evaluating both work related
behavior and potential of employees. It should be carried out in an objective manner. In order
to get best result of performance appraisal the CEO of every organization should create a
culture of excellence that motivates employee at all level and also encourage team work.
