  • Appraisal

    Assessing an employee or group of employees on their ability to fulfil the duties of their role.

    Appraisals are often done once per year and involve a combination of preparation meetings, written reports, discussing the objectives, and reviewing the results. By taking a systematic approach, it makes the job easier for the HR department and helps to mentally prepare the employee.

    An appraisal may be conducted at any time and the process can be as formal or informal as the employer wishes. If improvement is needed, employers should set clear and reasonable goals to help employees reach their full potential.
