Dear Shruthi,

Rather than concentrating on just Performance Appraisal (PA), I recommend you instituting comprehensive Performance Management System (PMS). PA is part of PMS.

Setting up Performance Management System (PMS) is far more serious activity. It has to be handled with due sensitivity. To institute PMS it requires great exposure across the spectrum of industries. If mishandled it may do more harm than good.

To know more about instituting PMS in the company, you click here to refer my past post.

There is lot of misconception on the concept of KPI and KRA. To remove this misconception, I have uploaded my presentation on Youtube. To refer that video, you may click here.

I have been giving my replies on the subject time and again. If you wish to refer my past replies, then you may click the following links to refer those:

I handle consulting on PMS. To know more about my services, you may click here. Talk to your management and if they are ready then we may work together. If you hire my services, I will do deep study of each department and design new measures which hitherto you had never thought of.

In most of the companies, the performance appraisal is based on the perception of the boss and budget allocation. All type of mathematics and bell curve statistics is used to ensure that the carrot is given to the boss pleasing
my suggestion for design is as follows
1. Define a well informed and measured Key Performance Measurement systems for all
2. Set the targets based on the KPM and reviews
3. Appraise on the achievements
in short, appraisal should be on agreed KPMs

In a good appraisal format, apart from employees details, format to be devised by incorporating
following details:
1) KRAs/KPAs laid down for the current year under review
2)KRAs/KPAs to be laid down for the next year
3) Achievements made/done forthe current year under review
4) Short falls, in any
5) Areas where the employee is required to give more focus
6) Identification of training needs (TNI)

From India, New Delhi
Hello Everyone, I am an HR at a Startup. My CEO wants me to plan for performance reviews.
I am new to this. My knowledge is that we need to take feedbacks from Manager, peers and self assessment.
I am confused as to how to design the weightage for all these feedbacks and how till their total score be derived. Is there any guide that I can follow.

Another thing is if we conduct a 360 degree feedback if there any free tool that can give a graph representation of the results?
