Course Overview

Do you fumble when you are required to discuss the performance appraisal with your team members?

Do you find it difficult to have positive and healthy conversations with them?

Performance Appraisal is an annual review cycle of an employee’s performance at the job and his/her contribution to the company. It is known by different names across the industry- Annual Review, performance review, evaluation or employee appraisal. The cycle of conducting the performance appraisal varies in every company. The appraisals can be conducted annually, semi-annually, or quarterly.

A Performance Appraisal is used by the company for several purposes-

(a) to give a bigger picture of the contribution by the employee

(b) to justify the hike in salaries and bonuses

(c) to offer learning and developmental plans

In the extremely competitive and volatile market of today, the managers are required to showcase their expertise in conducting performance appraisals, especially because of the human emotions, and the sensitivities involved.

On the one hand, the employee starts thinking of changing the job as soon as the appraisal cycle starts. On the other hand, the managers fear that some employees would start getting disinterested at work or might leave, i.e., in case they do not give them the increment the team member ask for, irrespective of their performance.

The key to success during performance review discussion lies in the ability of the managers to get to a buy-in from their team members, which would be possible when they provide constructive feedback on their performance, thus, alleviating the attrition rate in the team and company.
