What are performance appraisals?
So you may ask what are performance appraisals? Do they really
work for the best? This is a evaluation of one's performance. These
can be used for anything such as employment and school among many
other things. It is used to see how well you are able to perform
your job and/or use your skills to perform a certain task.
For a previous employer, it could be a yearly evaluation that you
had based on your performance of your job. The strengths and weaknesses
are usually determined during performance appraisals. If there is
a promotion coming up at your place of employment, then be on your
best performance because appraisals will most likely be performed
and determine who the promotion will be given to.
Usually with performance appraisals, employers have a paper with
different tasks on it. There are different scores that you can receive
on each task, usually between 1 and 5, but sometimes 1 and 10. The
employer will either watch you when you do not know, or may be right
there with you while performing the task and grade you. It's almost
as if you are taking a test. You are performing a task and getting
graded on it by your employer. Of course, the higher number you
receive the better you do your job. If you get the highest number,
then there is nothing you need to improve in. If you get lower than
half, you will probably have a private meeting with your employer
to discuss you work ethics.
So keep in mind to always be doing your best because you never
know when your employer may have performance appraisals on
