The performance appraisal process is something that every business needs to do if
they want to improve efficiency. Setting goals and measuring the progress is
something that is essential for any business to grow. Performance appraisals at all
levels of the business will help the top level management identify shortcomings and
allow the business to operate more efficiently.

There are certain aspects of appraisals that needs to be in place to facilitate effective
appraisals. Here are some of the most important aspects.

Planning -
The need to plan for appraisals is one of the most important parts. So often appraisals
become an afterthought and they contribute very little to actually improving
efficiency in the company. When you set a goal, you need to set dates for evaluating
the progress of those goals - and fix it in stone. Managers and employees need to have
these dates and be aware of when their performance will be evaluated.

Focus On Goals And Specific Outcomes -
The employer and employee relationship is a 2 way street and the employer needs to
understand the employee's goals and aspirations as much as the employee has to
understand the employer's goals and aspiration. When the focus is on specific goals, it
become much easier to measure and improve.

Attitudes -
When it comes to dealing with employees, its all about attitude. Having the wrong
attitude amongst your staff can quickly break down staff morale and send productivity
spiraling down. Staff reviews is a great time to address issues that affect attitude. Its
important to really listen to complaints and major issues as a little bit of poison can
quickly corrupt the whole vibe at work.
