1. HR does have role to play in Performance review execcise in terms of rating and assessment HR generally provides suggestions on review of particular employee. HR can question on how a person has been rated as Star or poor performer?
2. HR plays a role of Facilitator & Coordinator only in the whole process as during whole process HR does the calculation & fitment task along with defining appraisal policies.
3. No in some of the companies Operation or accounts depatment does appraisal
4. HR lay down policy, criteria & rating guidelines.
i hope i have answered upto some extent.
Its the HR who does the entire process of Performance Appraisal whether its quarterly or annual. HR along with the respective department head, devise the method of Appraisal. Later HR initiates the Process, collects the data from the department head and convey the rating / results of assessment to the department in the presence of the concerned employee.
Therefore, may be your company was not having any responsible person before to take up the task. You talk to the management, convey your interest and slowly take up the responsibility.
All the Best
Thanks for your prompt responses.
The HR has already laid down the processes/rating guidelines/review methods and our entire Performance Management Process is online. However, we are more involved with guiding the line managers into doing effective reviews, collating data and facilitating. We, as HR, have no say on the rating of the employee at all. Only the immediate supervisor and his Business Head decide that.
Is this how majority of the MNC's/Indian companies follow ?
