Nearly half of HR managers believe that annual appraisals are badlyconducted, according to research published yesterday in IRS Employment Review. The survey also shows two out of three say their own organisation’sappraisal process only works “quite well”, with one in 10 admittingit does not work very well at all. Seventy per cent of the UK’s largest employers appraise staff once a year,although many appraise new staff, or those who underperform, more frequently. There is a significant difference between the private and public sectors,however. While many companies link appraisal outcomes to decisions about payand bonuses, public sector bodies rarely do so, preferring to see the appraisalas a forum for identifying good performance. More than nine in 10 appraisals involve only the immediate manager orsupervisor and the employee – in sharp contrast with job interviews whereemployers, conscious of potential accusations of bias or impropriety, have atleast two or three managers present. Despite misgivings about the appraisal process, all those surveyed agreedthat appraisals are “an essential management tool”. www.irsemploymentreview.com Previous Article Next Articlelast_img
