Appraisal and Performance Management 

Are appraisals something you hate, do you avoid them?

 “Performance appraisals are unpopular with managers and staff alike, but uncertain times make them even more tricky, writes Gillian Hibberd - If you asked any line manager – even in the best of times – to tell you the top three things they dislike doing most, it’s fairly certain that performance appraisals would feature in the list. In my experience, it’s often cited as one of the most disliked tasks and usually second only to dismissing someone”. People Management 22 February 2011
