I dont know where to start and what to start
Once you start using the results of your performance appraisal system, it will automatically lead you into performance management system. Lets look at the following scenarios (as a result of performance appraisals):
- Identify star performers: You will get this list from your appraisal on who is performing to their best. Natually, you would want to grow them to the next level and task them to take up higher responsibilities. They may need some training and guidance for playing the next level of responsibilities - you can easily identify the training needs and provide them.
- Identify poor performers: this will also be a result of your appraisal. Either they need to be focussed on and trained to make sure that they start performing well (or) have them moved out of the organization.
- Periodically, you can identify the training / career aspiration needs when you do performance appraisals and this can be an input for the managers and L&D team.
Like this, once you start using the results of your appraisal system and take actions for long-term, it will automatically lead you to overall performance management activities - L&D, succession planning, competency management, etc.
Hope this helps,
