Abstract

"Questionnaire surveys were sent out to two hundred medium-sized companies in industry. The study is an attempt to find the main cause for the unsatisfactory results in most appraisal programs and to make recommendations concerning the implementation of an effective performance appraisal program. Human factors play an utmost important role in the success of the entire appraisal program. An atmosphere of mutual understanding and trust should be established between the well trained supervisor and his subordinate so that the rapport between them can be brought to the highest possible level. Performance appraisal should be considered as an integral part of the managerial functions. Each type of appraisal technique has its own strong and weak points, however, there is a general consensus that a combination of Management By Objectives and Free-Written Rating has the greatest strength"--Abstract, page ii.
