Performance appraisal explained
A performance appraisal ('annual review', 'performance (development) review' or 'evaluation') is the regular review of an employee's performance.
An appraisal should reflect the employee’s job, their key responsibilities, their wider participation within the team and their overall contribution (or expected contribution) to company-wide business objectives.
Appraisals should focus on performance and personal development with specific areas for employees and employers to concentrate their efforts on above and beyond the day-to-day environment.
