Hi Priya,

Jeeva has highlighted some good key points, however I would like to know the context of your question. If you are already in system, you should understand the following:

Industry or Field can be any kind but HR will remain unique in that system. HR observes the employee and employer needs and facilitate the coordination in business growth. In this process, HR will streamline the processes and procedures that draw certain guidelines to each functional area in the business.

As a contributor, you should drive agreed processes and policies as Jeeva highlighted. This process also includes employee satisfaction, motivation, and retention. If you surely understand the points that are mentioned by Jeeva, all these key processes are inter-linked and impact the corporate budget in a very effective manner.

Thus, a HR Manager who should understand the business requirement, build an effective healthy environment, maintain corporate values in the corporate domain, and to deliver a flaw-less service to his internal and external clients.

Knowing HR is deep and vast, and I suggest you to go through DK or Wiley publications to understand the effect of a HR in any organization. According to recent survey, 72% of HR managers are just doing the daily tasking whereas the rest are proven as innovative HR Managers.

Lengthy but hope you will get an idea out of it .... :)

Hi Priya,

The appraisal system in every organization does work in different fashion. You may find various formats for your purpose however you should customize them according to your business domain and department specific.

You can segragate the 100% achievement into five areas, and giving 20% to each area of assessment. In every area, you can set some guidelines related to applicable department, and for that every guideline, you can rank the person into five categories 1) Very Poor 2) Poor 3) Average 4) Above Average and 5) Excellent. After scoring the person at each point you can add the total score and rate him into certain category, i.e. 0-20, 21-40, 41-60, 61-80, 81-100.

Above is just an example and I am sure you neede more clarification. I suggest you to refer some online-available formats to understand this concept.

Finally, HR manager does just facilitate the appraisal system for the department heads and all department heads are supposed to drive this policy among their staff.

Hope you got some idea out of this message.
