Performance appraisal is the process of formally evaluating performance and providing feedback to job holders. A good performance appraisal will achieve two basic purposes in the maintenance of a quality workforce – evaluation and development. The evaluation function is intended to let people know where they stand relative to performance objectives and standards, while the development function is intended to assist in their training and continuous personal development. A good performance management system sets standards or targets, assesses results and plans for performance improvement. It is the desire to achieve these goals that has necessitated the design of this workshop.
