It helps the organisation to improve its performance and individual employees as well. The process of appraisal consist the following steps, stating objectives, developing standards, system design, preparing for interview and conducting the interview. Appraisal will be successful when the process is followed in an exact manner and the method that suits the organisation. Appropriate method of conducting appraisal should be selected by the company. The method should also be related to their objectives and needs.
It is more often used for the developmental purposes where managers get aware of their strengths and weaknesses. 360 degree appraisal is termed as the combination of information from self appraisal, sub ordinate appraisal, peer appraisal and feedback from other internal customers, with the possibility of including external suppliers and customers. * Critical Incident Technique: This method is one of the early attempts to move away from trait rating approaches and was advocated by Flanagan. The supervisor sets some incidents to each employee which is related to work behaviour. In this method rater is required to observe the positive and negative behaviours of the employees in the given review period. It is the method which is based on the description of the events which does not depend on the rating and ranking systems. Critical incidents can be exceedingly useful in helping employees improve since the information in them is more detailed and specific than in methods that involve rating employees. METHODS OF DATA COLLECTION Collection of relevant data or information is very important to take up any research study. Without data, researchers cannot get the appropriate results they wish to get. There may be lots of information available directly and sometimes information should be extracted from other sources. No source can provide fully relevant and accurate information. The quality of information also depends on various factors.
