Many people on both sides of the table worry about performance appraisals:
Bosses procrastinate about writing them, wonder if the meeting is going to be uncomfortable, and especially hate having to deliver bad news.
Employees worry about whether they are going to get the sort of rating they feel they deserve, whether there are going to be unpleasant surprises, and what the appraisal means for their next salary action.
On the other hand, performance appraisals can be an opportunity:
For the employee to cement outstanding performance in a boss’s eyes and raise visibility.
For a boss to begin turning around a problem employee, raise issues before they become serious problems and recognize outstanding performance.
What do you think? Post your comments on this question:
“Do you view performance appraisals as a meaningless exercise, or an opportunity to raise your visibility?”
