Designing and Implementing a Purposeful Employee Appraisal System

Date : 09/10/2018 (ONE-day Program) Time : 9.30 AM TO 5.00 PM

Venue : Productivity House, H.M.T. Road, Kalamassery.


Business and Industry are facing newer, more strident and unprecedented challenges these days. Besides the market competition that is marauding, whole new issues on the legal and socio-political environments are confronting Organizations. Climatic catastrophes such as the one culminating in the recent massive flood havoc in this part of the country, further highlight the onerous challenges ahead.

Employees, Managers and Workmen alike, are called upon to face the enormous tasks and responsibilities that emerge in this scenario, apart from attending to their routine work. The twin dimensions, ie, routine tasks and the ‘extra miles ‘ to be run, together demand performance not just of an exemplary nature, but of a substantially high order. Needless to say that better performance has to be properly identified and evaluated before  appreciating and   rewarding, so as  to encourage performance that is even better and more consistently so.

Can we therefore, any more afford to justify the absence or name-sake presence of appraisal systems, as is the case in many organizations even now? The conventional approach and method are characterized by the annual ‘form-filling ritual’ mostly used as an eleventh-hour tool to support salary raises and job promotions doled out with minimum objectivity.

How do we measure employee performance during such times of massive transformation? How can we evolve appraisal systems that are wedded to the Organization’s own mission and purpose?

This Workshop hopes to sound a wake-up call to Organizations to do a serious rethink and introspect on their current appraisal methods [or lack of any such method] and evolve effective, purpose-driven systems that respond positively to the current challenges.
