It is a general consensus these days that performance appraisal is broken. Managers hate to deliver them, employees hate to get them and HR is just tired of dealing with all the moaning and groaning associated with them. The general criticism is that they are poorly done and don’t really do anything to improve employees. I am not one of those people however that call for getting rid of performance appraisal. I think employees do want to have feedback. I think that we can improve performance appraisal by concentrating on what employees do well and forgetting their weaknesses.
