The duty of HR manager is not only to recruit and select the right candidate for the right job. After the process of employee selection, HR manager need to focuson performance appraisal of the employees. I think performance appraisal is themost important task of HR manager. Performance appraisal can do in manyways. First, give the proper reward for the appraisable work done by employee or branch. Second, understand the demand of the employees and try to fulfill it.Third, try to solve the problems of employees and branch as early as possible.Fourth, encourage them by arranging various motivational seminars or trainingsessions. There is one basic rule of industry that is, “if you give good to your employees, you will get good in return.”The HR manager can also arrange the negotiated appraisal. If there is two waycommunication in the organization means top to bottom and vice versa than toplevel can understand the need of the operational level employees. While intraditional performance appraisal process there is only one way communication.So, top manager can not understand the need of operational managers. So, thisis not an effective way for performance appraisal. Is that meaning that we shouldnot use the traditional approach for performance appraisal? No, experts areexperts they know the current scenario of the organization. So, they know thatwhat to do for improving performance of individual and organization. If anyemployee argues about raising of salary than top management can take wisedecision for raising salary. For example they can suggest employee for performance base pay that what you perform that you will get as reward. So, Ican say that using negotiable performance appraisal approach is not always agood idea. The other disadvantage of the negotiable performance appraisalapproach is that it takes almost 12 months time to respond because topmanagement take view of every employee so it become very lengthy process.While traditional approach have not require that much of time.
Why Performance Appraisal?
The one question comes in mind that why we need performance appraisal.Performance appraisal is a way to validate the organizational processes likeselection and training. It provides feedback to employees for improvement of performance in the organization.
Validating organizational actions
Employee’s recruitment process from interview to training is a very complexprocess. But above that performance appraisal is more complicated process thanthat process of recruitment. When top management announced any differentmethod for incentive pay than they need to monitor the action that whether employees are satisfied with the new method or not. They need to evaluate theperformance of employees and branches after implementing new method for pay.
