Abstract

Performance appraisal is the systematic observation and evaluation of employees’ performance. Some of the most commonly used performance appraisal methods include the judgmental approach, the absolute standards approach, and the results-oriented approach. Ideally, performance appraisal should be completely accurate and objective. However, the performance appraisal process is far from accurate and objective, sometimes resulting in rating errors. Common rating errors include strictness or leniency, central tendency, halo effect, and recency of events.
