An appraisal form is a measurement tool used by people managers and HR teams to assess and benchmark the performance of employees. This tool serves as an objective scorecard upon which supervisors and employees can agree on how an employee’s contribution to the business will be measured. A well-structured appraisal process enables benchmarking across teams and divisions to identify staff career development opportunities and areas for improvement. Learn how to conduct an effective performance appraisal.
An appraisal form typically includes a performance scorecard which rates an individual’s performance against key team and business metrics. General examples include attendance, productivity, quality of work, achievement of targets etc. In addition, an appraisal form should include sections for qualitative feedback on an employee’s commendations and areas for remediation.
Paper-based staff appraisal processes can create an administrative burden requiring scanning of documents (including staff signatures) as well as data re-entry for benchmarking purposes.
