Performance appraisal may be defined as a structured formal interaction between a subordinate and supervisor, that usually takes the form of a periodic interview (annual or semi-annual), in which the work performance of the subordinate is examined and discussed, with a view to identifying weaknesses and strengths as well as opportunities for improvement and skills development.
In many organizations appraisal results are used, either directly or indirectly, to help determine reward outcomes. Thus the employee performance appraisal forms are used to identify the better performing employees who should get the majority of available merit pay increases, bonuses, and promotions.
