Write a 7 pages paper on analysis of performance appraisal. As indicated from Table 1, the number one purpose of the performance appraisal (PA) for employees is to give feedback where 26.7% of the employees strongly agreed and 57.3% agreed. The second purpose was to develop employees’ performance at 25.3% (strongly agreed) and a staggering 61.3% of the employees agreed. The third most important purpose for the employees is to relieve uncertainty among employees were 22.7% and 56% strongly agreed and agreed, respectively.
On the other hand, the results from Table 2 revealed that managers perceive giving feedback as its primary purpose were 33.3% of the respondents strongly agreed and 66.7% agreed. This purpose was seconded by developing employees’ performance at 16.7% (strongly agreed) and 83.3% of the managers agreed. However, the second rank for both was to develop employees’ performance. It should be noted that managers also ranked “to improve communication among employees” as a second most important purpose for PA, where 50% strongly agreed and 33.3% agreed. The third most important purpose for PA, as perceived by managers, is actually three: to allocate financial rewards, to determine promotion, and to motivate employees where 50%, 33.3%, and 66.7% strongly agreed, respectively.
The least perceived purpose for the PA for employees and managers was to provide a structure of a plan of organizational success with only 9.3% of employees and none of the managers strongly agreed on this. 33.3% and 16.7% of employees and managers, respectively, agreed.
There is diversity in response between employees and managers when asked what they think are the problems and challenges associated with PA. Employees ranked not having feedback from managers and identified the problem in the PA as number 1. According to Table 3, the most significant challenges and problems associated with PA in the point of view of employees are: “managers do not have a performance feedback during meetings .with their employees” (where 26.7% strongly agreed and 38.7% agreed) and “there is a problem in the performance appraisal process in the Ministry” (where 29.3% strongly agreed and 30.7% agreed), both ranking number 1. .
