Staff Appraisal

Appraisals record an assessment of an employee's performance, potential, and development needs. An appraisal is an opportunity to take an overall view of work content, loads and volume, to look back on what has been achieved since the previous appraisal, and agree objectives for the future. Appraisal schemes are also known by other names, such as performance review, performance and development review.

Appraisals can help to improve employees' job performance by identifying strengths and weaknesses and determining how their strengths can be best utilised and developed and weaknesses overcome. Appraisals can help to reveal difficulties which may be restricting an employee's progress. In addition, appraisals can:

  • Improve communications and motivation by giving employees an opportunity to talk about their ideas, expectations and progress
