Thank you very much for your advice and the attachment was very helpful but what do i do know do i say as the employee is claiming that as the market trends are bad his performance is down,so based on the same as the revenue of the organization is down the hike is also down this time.

Hi Deepthi,
You are actually answering the question that you are asking?
"His Performance is Down"? Who decided this and what was the basis to this remark?
Does his reporting manager has a tangible analysis with him to claim his performance was down.?
Was the subject employee given his expectation for period this evaluation is being done.
Just because "I feel it" attitude is not good for Leaders, hope you got the point.
You need to ask yourself this question and seek answer and then make your package and sell it to the subject employee and most impt "set his target and expectation within his KRA and KPI" for next review.
Well, remember when good things have to be conveyed all wants to be in front-end to do it. But when something bad needs to be conveyed, they push some one else. Old Politics still works. Hmmm.

As I understand the manager doesnot want to lose the employee but also wants to safeguard his budget. You could act as below:

1. Understand with the manager what hike he is proposing for the employee.

2. Over and above the hike you can suggest an aggressive incentive plan (special incentive plan if required), that is in lines with the expectation of the manger and employee.

3. Agree with the manager now on treatment of incentive, if the employee is not able to meet the defined targets. Is he willing to part with some cash still if employee meets 80% or 90% of the plan?

4. In parallel speak with the employee to understand his aspirations (work/salary), what he feels worked out well last year, what the challenges were and how he is looking to address the challenges for the coming year.

5. Ensure that your proposal will meet the needs to both employee and the manager. If not, be candid to share your thoughts

6. Lastly, while communicating to the employee, ask the manager to do the talking (in your presence).

7. Last but not the least, if there are (your and manager’s) senior in the organization take them into confidence.

All the best.
