1. PURPOSE OF STUDY

After employee selection, performance appraisal is the most important management tool for the success and growth of any organization. The performance appraisal, when properly carried out, can help to fine tune and reward the performance of present employee and align the personal goals of the employee with the organizational goals.

Performance appraisal for evaluation using the traditional approach has served the following purposes:

 Promotion, separation, and transfer decisions

 Feedback to the employee regarding how the organization viewed the employee's performance

 Evaluations of relative contributions made by individuals and entire departments in achieving higher level organization goals

 Criteria for evaluating the effectiveness of selection and placement decisions, including the relevance of the information used in the decisions within the organization

 Reward decisions, including merit increases, promotions, and other rewards

 Ascertaining and diagnosing training and development decisions

 Criteria for evaluating the success of training and development decisions
