performance appraisal

a face-to-face discussion in which one employee’s work is discussed, reviewed, and appraised by another, using an agreed and understood framework. Usually, line managers conduct the appraisals of their staff, although peers can appraise each other, and line managers can themselves be appraised by their staff through 360 degree appraisal. The appraisal process focuses on behaviors and outcomes, and strives to improve motivation, growth, and performance of the appraisee. Performance appraisals should be conducted at least once per year.
