Dinesh DivekarDear Vishwa,
There appear to be certain misgivings about Performance Management System (PMS). Please note the following:
a) Performance Appraisal (PA) is part of PMS. The PMS is primarily for measuring organisational performance and not human. However, since organisation does not performance in itself, we need to measure performance of people.
b) Whether manual or through IT systems, what you measure is important. What if certain organisational performance is not measured even if the PMS is backed by sound IT system? It is of no use!
c) The starting for PMS is identifying costs and ratios associated with the business and assign these costs and ratios to the HODs concerned. If this is not done, it is a faulty PMS.
d) For 25 persons, you do not need any IT systems, nothing wrong to have manual system. The process followed should be sound.
e) Lastly, the important thing about PMS that each HR should ask is whether they are rewarding their people at the expense of organisation. With this self-defeating PMS, no company can grow!
