Performance appraisals are an opportunity for employers and employees to have a dialogue on past achievements and future development plans.
Using specific performance management tools such as the employee performance plan to include the necessary competencies and behaviors, performance criteria and the expected outcomes, can help avoid bias. Moreover, it leads to employee appraisals that are based on data and reflect on actual accomplishments and progress.
Almost every one of us knows how hard it can be to focus on work when there is a coworker or boss with a really difficult character. Some people don’t care what others think of their behavior, they may test your patience and push your buttons. It thus goes without saying that such coworkers make the overall atmosphere in the team unhealthy.
You have worked really hard to get where you are, and you should be congratulated for it. Dedication and a stalwart desire to achieve results have brought you the level of success you may be currently enjoying.
That being said, amidst the celebration, let’s not forget the people that have helped you along your journey – your employees.
The moment KPIs appear in our organizational life and journey along with performance reviews, targets, performance rewards and other elements, the change done to the current system starts to impact not only the business’s processes, but also its employees.
