INTRODUCTION, IMPORTANCE & SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

The history of Performance Appraisal is quite brief. Its roots in the early 20th century

can be traced to Taylor’s pioneering time and Motion studies. But this is not very helpful,

for the same may be said about almost everything in the field of modern human

resources management.

As a distinct & formal management procedure used in the evaluation of work

performance, appraisal really dates from the time of the second world war-not more

than 60 year ago. Yet in a broader sense, the practice of appraisal is a very ancient art.

In the scale of things historical, it might well lay claim to being the world’s second oldest

profession. A basic human tendency to make judgment about those one is working

with, as well as about oneself. In the absence of a carefully structured system of

appraisal, people will tend to judge the work performance of other, including sub-

ordinates, naturally, informally & arbitrarily.

The human inclination to judge can create serious motivational, ethical & legal problems

in the workplace. Without a structured appraisal system, there is little chance of

ensuring that judgments made will be lawful, fair, defensible & accurate.

==================================================================

In Company there are various levels of Managerial Category. Depending on

departments, sections, responsibility, nature of work everybody performs the job. But in

modern days the time has come where all the employees are expected to perform the

job which will aim at achieving Management’s Annual Operating Plan. For this purpose

the Annual Operating Plan is given to the respective Department Head, who in turn

divides this in small activities, which individual has to understand, the expectation of job,

performance, initiatives, task, competency at the initial stage & perform the job as per

the expectation & time limit.

The Appraisal System shall be done in a transparent manner. This Appraisal System

enables identification of developmental gaps. The Appraiser & Apraisee arrive at an

agreement on the gaps perceived. This system helps the Management in assessment

of individual, merit, competency, professional knowledge & skills. This also helps for

consideration of recognition & promotion.

RATIONALE

In Kirloskar Ferrous Industries Limited every year in the month of July, the Managers

promotion, increment are considered and done. For this Annual Performance rating is

done based on quarterly evaluation of Appraisal Forms. To study Appraisal System

with evaluation of Appraisal Forms has encouraged the need of study. Study will start

with collection of data, analyzing the process & finalization of evaluation. The study

focuses more on two aspects –

1) Companies Annual Operating Plan

2) Individual quantitative targets & key results areas.

PROJECT REPORT SYNOPSIS 2010

The study will be helpful to the management to provide the clear information about

Appraisal System, evaluation of individual performance and which will be leading to

achieving company’s target / goal. It will also give a message to all the managers that

the person will be rewarded, promoted based on his performance. Also individual

employee gets the information about his area of improvement and also his expectation

from management regarding resources and support.

OBJECTIVES

1. To provide feedback to managers so that they come to know where they


stand and can improve their job performance.

2. To provide a valid database for personnel decisions concerning placements,


pay, promotion, transfer, punishment, etc.

3. To diagnose the strength and weakness of individuals so as to identify further


training needs.

4. To improve coaching, counseling, career planning and motivation to


subordinates.

5. To develop positive superior-subordinate relations and thereby reduces


grievances.

6. To facilitate research in personnel management.

7. To test the effectiveness of recruitment, selection, placement and induction


programmers.

Thus, Performance Appraisal aims at both judgment and developmental efforts. The

first two objectives are judgmental whereas the remaining is developmental. Under

developmental efforts employees are helped to identify their weakness and take steps

to overcome them.
