…That is indeed the question!
There is so much here it’s challenging to squeeze it all in – so I won’t and instead will do some articles/videos about this. To sum up, if you and your managers do undertake performance appraisals then please ensure that:
- They have received some training about how to effectively give feedback
- They are measuring the right things
- They know to focus on strengths, not weaknesses
- That staff have the means to measure their own performance so they’re not dependent upon potentially very subjective opinions…
Great managers don’t have to depend upon performance appraisals to know how their staff are performing because they are working with them on an ongoing basis.
