Thearea of major concern was the improvement in the performance appraisal system. The newimprovements were based on the other company’s performance appraisal system.The study has been conducted from a mix of primary and secondary sources with amajority of it being primary data. First, the benchmarking process was thoroughly studied,the subject area (HR Deliverables) and objectives to be benchmarked were identified and a plan to achieve the same was devised.During the course of the study, it was seen that, in order to create an industry benchmark,the various practices within the various business units (i.e.; the internal data) were to bestandardized. An in-depth study of the various implementation techniques (of Performanceappraisal) of the different BU’s was carried out and the problem areas and unique “best practices” were identified.
