Attitudes to appraisal and performance management process


Last Published  01 August 2012

Some people see performance management, and particularly annual appraisal, as a pointless, bureaucratic and uncomfortable process. Yet if appraisees do not feel positive about appraisal and performance reviews, if they do not prepare for them and if they do not accept their responsibility for performance improvement, the activity will never achieve its full potential.

This tool will help participants to see the full range of benefits available from appraisal and performance management. It will also help them realise that they have a vital contribution to make to the whole process.

Tool aim
