5 Steps To Great Employee Performance Appraisal

The key elements to successful staff performance appraisal are:

  1. Clarity of objectives set, the standards to which they need to be achieved and the timeframe for achieving them: the appraisees are therefore clear about what's expected of them
  2. Consistency of measurement and assessment: appraisees believes the process is fair, understand how they are being appraised, and what the results of the appraisal are going to mean
  3. Managers or appraisers with good feedback and coaching skills who can encourage and support people and who can provide constructive feedback – and difficult messages - clearly and unambiguously: appraisees receive the appraisal messages and are able to start taking action on them
  4. Regular feedback in between formal appraisals: then appraisees don't feel like they've been pounced on without warning, especially if there are issues to be resolved
  5. A good internal process for highlighting any underperformance issues early on, and for supporting line managers in dealing with these effectively: appraisees feel supported and are more likely to remain engaged and make an effort to improve their performance

"Track and Empower 360 were fantastic, offering brilliant backup. They were very available and responsive, the system just worked like a dream, and I don't think there were any issues throughout the whole process."

"… much easier than other 360 Degree Feedback systems that I've worked with. It's also relatively easy to make minor adaptations to meet the requirements of specific clients e.g. email templates, logo onto reports, customised free text questions."

"Ease of use and the unbelievable feature to cost ratio, exceptionally good value."
