A series of questions are presented concerning an employee to his behavior. It consists of several numerical scales. cooperation and the like. the raters doesn’t evaluate employee performance. then computes the employee’s total numerical score. The number of points scored may be linked to salary increases whereby so many points equal a rise of some percentage. 53 . The rater checks the appropriate performance level on each criterion. the rater is given a series of statements about an employee.

This method is also useful when comparable information is needed from employee in different units or locations. Average 40%. For example. The outsider reviews employee records and holds interview with the ratee and his/her superior. the following distribution might be assumed to exist – Excellent 10%. The method is primarily used for make promotional decision at the managerial level. Such incidents are recorded by the superiors as and when they occur. The forced distribution method seeks to overcome the problems by compelling the rater to distribute the rates on all points on the rating scale.Typical statements are :i) ii) iii) d) Learns Fast…………………. 54 .Works hard Work is reliable…………… Performance is a good example Absent often…………………usually tardy Forced Distribution Method One of the errors in rating is leniency-clustering a large number of employees around a high point on a rating scale. Below Average 20% and Unsatisfactory 10% e) Critical Incidents Method This approach focuses on certain critical behaviors of an employee that makes all the difference between effective and non-effective performance of a job. f) Field Review Method This is an appraisal by someone outside the assesee’s own department usually some one from the corporate office or the HR department.

B. there are five employees name A. the appraiser compares each employee with every other employee. Performance of the employee is then evaluated based on the established relationship between the cost and the benefit. and E. 55 . The usual comparative forms used in this kind of evaluation are the Ranking method and the Paired Comparison Method. The number of comparisons may be calculated with the help of formula which is as under N(N-1)/2 Where. and E. The same procedure is repeated for other employees. Paired – Comparison Method Under this method. For example.

After the comparison. “BO is the establishment of effectiveness areas and effectiveness standards for the managerial positions and the periodic conversions of these into measurable time bound objectives linked vertically and horizontally and with future planning”.

The appraisal normally consists of in-depth interviews. psychological tests. Thus.

Assessment centres are now being used for evaluating executive or supervisory potential. Assesses are requested to participate in in-basket exercises. by observing their behavior across a series of selected exercises or work samples. The principle idea is to evaluate managers over a period of time. computer simulations. the raters meet to discuss these observations. 57 . role playing. as in the actual job. and other similar activities which requires the same attributes for successful performance. After recording their observations of rate behaviors.discussions with supervisors and a review of other evaluations. An assessment centre is a central location where managers may come together to have their participation in job-related exercises evaluated by trained observers.

Such ratings do not serve any purpose. ii) The Error Central Tendency Some raters follow play safe policy in rating by rating all the employees around the middle point of the rating scale and they avoid rating the people at both the extremes of the scale. iii) Leniency & Strictness The leniency bias crops when some raters have a tendency to be liberal in their rating by assigning higher rates consistently. The rater biases include :i) Halo Effect It is the tendency of the raters to defend excessively on the rating of one trait or behavioral consideration in rating all other traits or behavioral considerations. Equally damaging one is assigning consistently low rates.

61 . 2) Failure of the superior in conducting Performance Appraisal and Post Performance Appraisal interviews. Less reliability and validity of the Performance Appraisal Techniques.iv) Recency Effect The raters generally remember the recent actions of the employee at the time of rating and rate on the basis of these recent action – favorable or unfavorable rather than on the whole activities. 4) 5) 6) Negative rating affect Interpersonal Relations and Industrial Relation System Influence of external environmental factors and uncontrollable internal factors Some ratings particularly about the potential appraisal are purely based on guesswork 7) 8) Supervisors may get confused due to many objectives of Performance Appraisal Management emphasizes on punishment rather than development of an employee in Performance Appraisal.

360° PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL METHOD The Performance Appraisal method. The 360-degree technique is understood as systematic collection of performance data on an individual or group. customers. He should prepare reports and make judgements without bias. The appraiser should be capable of determining what is important and what is relatively less important. Peer Consider the following factors while appraising :   Delegation of authority Team Spirit Motivation Subordinates The concept of having rated by subordinates is being used in most organizations today. team members. in which multiple raters are involved in evaluating performance. Such a novel method can be useful in 63 . other superiors having knowledge about the work of the employee and department head or Manager. peers. Supervisors Supervisors include superiors of the employee. is called 360-degree appraisal. and self.the stakeholders being the immediate supervisors. Peers Peer appraisal may be reliable if the work group is stable over a reasonably long period of time and performs tasks that require interaction. derived from a number of stakeholders. especially in developed countries.

other organizational settings too provided the relationships between superiors and subordinates are cordial. Self If individual understand the objectives they are expected to achieve and the standards by which they are to be evaluated, they are to a great extent in best position to appraise their own performance. Customers Employee performance in every service organizations relating to behaviors, promptness, speed in doing the job and accuracy, can better be judged by the customers or users of services. Consultants Sometimes consultants may be engaged for the appraisal when employees or employers do not trust supervisor for appraisal and management does not trust the self-appraisal or peer appraisal or subordinate appraisal.

360 degree appraisal form design - template guidelines
Job descriptions are also a useful starting point for (but by no means the full extent of) establishing feedback criteria, as are customer/staff survey findings in which expectations/needs/priorities of appraisee performance are indicated or implied. A 360 degree appraisal template typically contains these column headings or fields, also shown in the template example below:

Key skill/capability type (eg communications, planning, reporting, creativity and problem solving, etc - whatever the relevant key skills and capabilities are for the role in question).

64

Skill component/element (eg 'active listening and understanding' [within a 'communications' key skill], or 'generates ideas/options' [within a 'creativity/problem solving' key skill]). The number of elements per key skill varies - for some key skills there could be just one element; for others there could be five or six, which I'd recommend be the maximum. Break down the key skill if there are more than six elements - big lists and groups are less easy to work with.

• •

question number (purely for reference and ease of analysis) specific feedback question (relating to skill component, eg does the person take care to listen and understand properly when you/others are speaking to him/her? [for the active listening skill])

tick-box or grade box (ideally a,b,c,d or excellent, good, not good, poor, or rate out of 5 or 10 - N.B. clarification and definitions of ratings system to participants and respondents is crucial, especially if analysing or comparing results within a group, when obviously consistency of interpretation of scoring is important)

360 degree feedback form template example
A typical 360 degree feedback form template would look like this. This template allows a mixture of key skills comprising one, two, three, four, and up to six elements. The number of elements per key skill/capability would vary of course, so if necessary adjust the size of the boxes in the first column accordingly to accommodate more or less elements. See the notes directly above for more explanation about the purpose of each column and heading, and the feedback scoring method.

Chapter 4 DATA ANALYSIS 67 .

DATA ANALYSIS
Analysis has been made on the data collected by means of Questionnaires. For this purpose, I prepared two questionnaires – First for the permanent Workers and Staff members and Second for the Managers of Varun Beverages Ltd. The Questionnaires have been prepared keeping in mind the level and magnitude of activities carried out by the Workers, Staff & Managers. The basic aim of questionnaire is to find out the mental perspective of the respondent towards the Performance Appraisal exercise followed at Varun Beverages Lt. The Questionnaire also aims at finding the level of motivation of the respondent with reference to the performance appraisal exercise i.e. whether the respondent feels motivated after his appraisal and works hard for the same. The questionnaire also highlights some suggestions given by the respondents as alternatives which the organization can practice for better working and for improving satisfaction level of the employees.

FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS 89 .

production incentives expenses should be provided to the employees • • • There should be proper utilization of existing manpower Employees should be given recognition at proper intervals. participation in decision makings etcs. 90 .. The work related benefits like overtime.but also by appreciation of their performance in public • Worker’s opinion regarding their job should be given more priority. Suggestions from the employees should be welcomed with open arms and if found suitable should be implemented • More opportunities should be given to the employees regarding.RECOMMENDATIONS • Certain recommendations can be made after interviewing various employees at different levels with the help of my data sheet. T&D. Some recommendations are as follows :• Good performer should not only be rewarded by promotion etc. MDPs.

CONCLUSION After analysis of the data collected and compiled we can say that. The company should have manageable working hours and equitable pay to ensure employee satisfaction. Public appreciation of his/her performance may also prove fruitful to this purpose. the management should pay heed to the problems faced by the dissatisfied employees and may even implement the suggestions given by them. Thus. In conducting this study. If the organization does so. it was found some employees are satisfied with the company’s appraisal technique whereas some are not. one can say for sure that the company will have a brighter future. The company should also reward the efficient employees occasionally to motivate them. Thus. the company should feel more free to work and accomplish the maximum results. VBL is doing well but a major area for the concern is that the employees feel themselves are not being involved in the decision making activity. This may bring down the moral of the employees. 91 . This is bringing down the motivation level of the employees.
