Dear Nandini,
To institute PMS, it is better to take the help of a professional consultant. PMS is a major HR intervention and if mishandled, it may do more damage than good.
I have written replies on this subject so many times. You may refer to my following comments:

Dear Nandini,

First and foremost, please note that I am not "Dinkar" and I am "Dinesh Divekar".

First, we have to identify the KPIs for each department. Based on the KPIs, we have to make KRA. Based on these two PMS is developed. There is no difference between "small" or "big" organisation as far as KPIs are concerned. These are universal and do not have geographical relevance too. I recommend you watch my video on Youtube. It will bring clarity on the concepts of KPI and KRA:


Let me reiterate my previous suggestion of hiring an external consultant. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Hope you or your management takes note of this proven adage and does not try to defy it.

My advice? Don't do it.

Performance management is a bureaucratic process based on controlling employees through commands and policies. It is meant to appear to improve performance, but all it does is prevent management from achieving huge performance gains by causing their employees to become fully engaged.

The very best performing workforce loves to come to work and has very high levels of competence, confidence, trust, morale, autonomy, commitment, motivation, peace of mind, ownership, and pride. Such a workforce is hundreds of percent more productive than if poorly engaged. But current worldwide studies indicate 70% of employees are either not engaged or actively disengaged (meaning working against the company) so there aren't many best performing workforces.

If you want the very best, there are specific actions management can take to create such a workforce and specific reasons why those actions are effective while other actions such as PMS consistently cause poor performance. The required actions are simple to learn and simple to execute. I am willing to advise management if desired.

Best regards, Ben Simonton
