Contents of getting performance appraisal methods ================== Companies and managers use a number of common appraisal methods to assess employee performance. Each technique has pros and cons. To determine which technique works best for your business, you need to understand the purposes of appraising performance. A performance appraisal should motivate an employee to better performance by helping him understand why he needs to move away from poor performance or toward critical objectives. Rating Scales The graphic rating scale and behavioral rating scale are two common rating scale appraisal techniques. With the graphic scale, employees are simply assigned a score on criteria important to job success. The behavioral scale focuses on actual behaviors. Pros of ratings scales include ease of use and understanding. Many managers and employees are familiar with them. They offer a simple way to communicate areas of strengths and weaknesses. A common negative of rating scales is the assumption that they are directly tied to an employee's raise or bonus. This can cause score inflation. Managers can also have negative bias toward employees. Narrative Techniques The narrative technique and critical-independent method involve more details analyses of job performance. You write an essay assessment of performance with the narrative and keep a running log describing positive and negative performance and behaviors with the critical- independent method. A pro of these techniques is the thoroughness of detail in analyzing employee behaviors. Additionally, you can focus on praising positive behavior and addressing

Comparison Methods The multiperson comparison method and forced distribution methods are two common comparison appraisal techniques. These approaches compare the subject employee's performance to peers. This allows you to communicate to an employee areas in which he over- or under- performs relative to others in similar positions. This can motivate performance in competitive workplaces and among competitive employees. The risks of these methods include the potential of in-fighting and the lack of harmony you might see in your employee ranks. 360 Feedback A popular contemporary appraisal technique is the 360 degree feedback. In this method, employees are evaluated by colleagues, customers, subordinates, other interested parties an supervisors. The major advantage of this technique is that it offers the employee a glimpse of how others view his performance in various relationships critical to his job. It also allows a better chance to compare different perspectives in the evaluation process. Biased evaluators, poor alignment with goals and negative employee feelings are among cons of this approach. ================== III. Performance appraisal methods 1.Ranking Method The ranking system requires the rater to rank his subordinates on overall performance. This consists in simply putting a man in a rank order. Under this method, the ranking of an employee in a work group is done against that of another employee. The relative position of each employee is tested in terms of his numerical rank. It may also be done by ranking a person on his job performance against another member of the competitive group. Advantages of Ranking Method i. Employees are ranked according to their performance levels. ii. It is easier to rank the best and the worst employee. Limitations of Ranking Method i. The “whole man” is compared with another “whole man” in this method. In practice, it is very difficult to compare
  3. 3. individuals possessing various individual traits. ii. This method speaks only of the position where an employee stands in his group. It does not test anything about how much better or how much worse an employee is when compared to another employee. iii. When a large number of employees are working, ranking of individuals become a difficult issue. iv. There is no systematic procedure for ranking individuals in the organization. The ranking system does not eliminate the possibility of snap judgements. 2. Rating Scale Rating scales consists of several numerical scales representing job related performance criterions such as dependability, initiative, output, attendance, attitude etc. Each scales ranges from excellent to poor. The total numerical scores are computed and final conclusions are derived. Advantages – Adaptability, easy to use, low cost, every type of job can be evaluated, large number of employees covered, no formal training required. Disadvantages – Rater’s biases 3. Checklist method Under this method, checklist of statements of traits of employee in the form of Yes or No based questions is prepared. Here the rater only does the reporting or checking and HR department does the actual evaluation. Advantages – economy, ease of administration, limited training required, standardization. Disadvantages – Raters biases, use of improper weighs by HR, does not allow rater to give relative ratings
  4. 4. 4. Critical Incidents Method The approach is focused on certain critical behaviors of employee that makes all the difference in the performance. Supervisors as and when they occur record such incidents. Advantages – Evaluations are based on actual job behaviors, ratings are supported by descriptions, feedback is easy, reduces recency biases, chances of subordinate improvement are high. Disadvantages – Negative incidents can be prioritized, forgetting incidents, overly close supervision; feedback may be too much and may appear to be punishment. 5. Essay Method In this method the rater writes down the employee description in detail within a number of broad categories like, overall impression of performance, promoteability of employee, existing capabilities and qualifications of performing jobs, strengths and weaknesses and training needs of the employee. Advantage – It is extremely useful in filing information gaps about the employees that often occur in a better-structured checklist. Disadvantages – It its highly dependent upon the writing skills of rater and most of them are not good writers. They may get confused success depends on the memory power of raters. 6. Behaviorally Anchored Rating Scales statements of effective and ineffective behaviors determine the points. They are said to be behaviorally anchored. The rater is supposed to say, which behavior describes the employee performance. Advantages – helps overcome rating errors. Disadvantages – Suffers from distortions inherent in most rating techniques.
