Performance Appraisal is administered by numerous organisations to review and assess the work performance of their employees. This is to enable development plans, confirmation, performance rewards, promotions, and an enlargement of job duties if the employee proves to be worthy. It is an opportunity for the Managers and/or Supervisors to coach and give feedback, both positive and negative, on a regular and timely basis so that their staff can grow and develop. In setting clear performance objectives to achieve, both supervisors and staff would then have a clear plan and targets to achieve.
