Abolishing Performance Appraisals: Why They Backfire and what to Do Instead
This work challenges readers to think more profoundly about the questions surrounding the use of appraisal. The authors separate the five discrete functions of appraisal - coaching, feedback, compensation, employee development, and legal documentation - and clarify the objectives of each. They also examine - relative to each function - the underlying assumptions and each function's track record through appraisal, including any pernicious, unintended effects. Case studies of organizations using alternative approaches are presented, and from a variety of industries: manufacturing, retail, service, and education. The authors also provide practical guidance on the elimination of appraisals and the design of alternative approaches.
