Step #1: Performance Planning

KPA Setting Process
Corporate Plan MOUs

Process Steps
Set KPAs KPA setting for all appraisees in consultation with the reporting officer (appraiser) KPAs to be set by referring to the KPA Directory and taking inputs from the MoU targets, functional plans, individual responsibilities and cascading of KPAs from the top The KPAs, once finalised, to be signed off by the appraiser and the appraisee Identify Competencies Functional competencies for the appraisee to be identified and written in the PMS form by referring to the Competency Directory Managerial competencies to be identified from the prescribed set on the PMS form

Company Goals Unit Goals


Functional / Departmental Goals

Special Tasks

Individual Goals

Why is it critical?
Parameters for performance measurement are predefined Objectives are prioritized Individual performance is enhanced by clear definition of deliverables Role of individuals is clarified within overall organizational context

Principles of Formulating Key Performance Areas

Define Job Families Define Roles Develop KPAs

The critical few areas which define the employees contribution towards achievement of organizational objectives They are to be derived from MoU, functional plan, plant level plan, supervisors priorities etc. Select KPAs where there is greater element of control. KPAs of managers in a chain are linked to a large extent. Thus, many managers have the interest to support a managers KPAs.

A KPA based Performance Management System plays a critical role in achieving business strategy
Define Job Families Define Roles Develop KPAs

Achieve Business Strategy and Goals Communicate the strategy, goals and management priorities to the organisation Provide a vehicle to align the objectives, actions and behaviour of employees with the overall objectives of the organisation Provide control to management Track progress towards goals Assign responsibility and accountability Provide early warning to top management Enable the organisational and individual improvement process Gather data to measure performance Identify areas that need improvement Provide objective feedback and facilitate learning

A KPA based Performance Management System provides the rudder which management requires to steer the ship

Performance Planning
Performance Planning is done through a process of discussion between executive and the reporting officer to arrive at the performance targets for the Key Performance Areas (KPAs)

KPA Setting Process

Corporate Plan

MOUs Company Goals Unit Goals


Functional / Departmental Goals Special Tasks Individual Goals

Performance Planning

Identify the KPAs, their constituents (Activities), measures for each constituent, marks and three different performance (target) levels. While filling the form, the guidelines need to be kept in mind. KPA directory available for reference

Performance Planning
Example of KPAs: Coal Mining CBA Act 1957 (L3): Site
SNo KPA indices with marks Constituents of the KPA index Measure Weightage of constituents Target performance levels Stretch (100%) Intermediate (80%) Base (60%)

Application & Collection of relevant data (Khatian, Maps, etc) Notifications (Section 4) Index Preparation of land plan and land schedule (Section 4) Submission of land plan & land schedule to CC (Section 4) Preparation of Land Plan (Village wise, Plot details) (Section 7) Freezing of Block Boundary (Section 7) Verification of plot details (Section 7) Submission of land plan to CC (Section 7) Collecting data of nature and the extent of the land to be acquired (Section 9) Submission of data to CC (Section 7) Liaisoning for Section 10

For executives in lower grades, there is higher weightage on KPAs and functional competencies as the there is higher focus on achieving the immediate functional tasks The weightage on managerial competencies and values increases for an executive as the grade increases because the role requires achieving business goals by managing work of other employees

Competencies are defined under two heads: Functional and Managerial

Competencies A combination of the skills, knowledge and behaviors that are critical to A combination of the skills, knowledge and behaviors that are critical to the success of the organization and the achievement of individual the success of the organization and the achievement of individual performance goals performance goals

Types of Competencies

Competencies that are required for success in a particular function or job family Typically involve demonstrating technical/expert knowledge

Behavioral in nature Generally relevant to all employees

Benefits of defining Competencies for each role

The opportunity to link HR systems with business objectives A common language to define the skills, knowledge and behaviors required for successful performance in positions across the organization An integrated approach to people issues Recruitment, PMS, Training etc. Improved quality of information on people within the organization

Job families have been defined on the basis of the roles performed by different departments within a function

Step #2: Mid-year Review

Why is it critical? Performance management is not an event but an ongoing process Helps in objective annual evaluation Provides early warnings of nonperformance; avoids year end surprises Opportunity to revisit KPAs, change weightages or measures Reinforces good performance in time Provides an opportunity for appraisee to express his thoughts on progress made and roadblocks encountered Process Steps Appraiser and appraisee to discuss changes in KPAs, if necessary All KPAs to be re-filled in the form if any changes are made in either the KPAs, weightages or targets Justification for change to be documented Self appraisal to be completed Appraiser to document mid year discussion

Guidelines for changing KPAs in the mid year Change in roles and responsibilities of appraisee (transfer, additional role etc.) Changes in organisational goals Unanticipated projects Abandonment of project as per corporate directive Situations beyond control of the appraisee such as accident or emergency situations

Step #3: Annual Assessment

Why is it critical? Formal process to ensure performance is assessed annually Opportunity for reviewing officer to offset rating biases Provides inputs for other HR systems: Rewards and Incentives Career Development Training and Development Process Steps for Appraiser and Appraisee Evaluate performance against KPAs by comparing actual performance to targets set Evaluate Functional/technical competencies (chosen at the beginning of the year) Managerial competencies (3 mandatory and 3 optional) Values & Potential Complete section on Special Achievements Transfer scores from all sections to the section on Total Marks for consolidation Complete Individual Training and Development Plan Process Steps for Revng Officer Review the marks given for each section by the appraiser check for overrating or underrating Hold discussion with appraiser in case changes in scores are required Rationale for changes in scores must be documented on PMS form Reviewing officer and appraiser sign-off on the PMS form

Annual Assessment

The reporting officer is to invite the concerned executive to participate in the annual assessment.

Annual Assessment
During annual assessment marks to be provided for the following: KPAs Functional/Technical competencies evaluated on 10 point scale) Managerial/Executive competencies evaluated on 10 point scale) (to (to be be

Values (to be evaluated on 10 point scale) Potential competencies (to be evaluated on 10 point scale) Special achievements to be filled Individual training & development plan also needs to be filled

Annual Assessment

Step #4: Normalization Process

Objectives of Normalization Process Ensure parity and integrity by minimizing rater variation across various departments Enhance objectivity and transparency in the appraisal system

Final Output PMS scores from Appraiser Reviewer to check integrity Performance Management Committee
Top 30% Middle 65% Bottom 05%

Process Steps of Normalization Plot distribution of scores for the cluster to check for skewing within and across departments Checks to be made whether employees have been overrated or underrated on various PMS parameters such as: KPA assessment Competencies, Values and Potential assessment Make suitable adjustments to scores, where necessary, Scores (revised and unchanged) and reasons for moderation to be documented in PMS form All appraisees in the cluster must be categorized into Top 20%, Middle 70% and Bottom 10%

Depending upon the grade and location, employees would be normalized either at the Plant, RHQ or CC
Grade E1-E4 (to be normalised together) E5 Posted at Plants, Projects RHQ CC Plants, Projects RHQ CC E6 Plants, Projects, RHQ CC E7, E7A, E8 and E9 Plants, Projects, RHQ, CC To be normalized at Plant/ Project RHQ CC Plant/ project RHQ CC RHQ CC CC

Principles of Normalization Cluster of different departments have been created (at various levels) for effective normalization of performance Minimum size of 15 executives in a cluster for performance normalization
The performance scores finalized by the Performance Management Committee and the categorization at the end of the normalization process are final

Departments with affinities congregated to form clusters



Example of Cluster

Depending upon the level, location and the number of executives in the given level function, clusters would be either at the plant, RHQ or CC level The PACE reports of executives who have been transferred during the course of an assessment year shall be normalized at the place of posting where he/she is working as on the last day of the relevant assessment cycle

Linkage of PMS to other HR systems

Outputs of PMS Linkage with other HR Systems Rewards System - Differential individual rewards for each category Career Development System PMS scores and relative rankings are one of the key inputs for the CDS

Top 30% Middle 65% Bottom 05%

PMS Training and Development System Inputs for Competency Assessment and Development Plans designing of training programmes Career Development System Competency profiles of employees would provide inputs for job rotation and placement decisions

Step #5: Communication of Score and Developmental Feedback

Performance Management Committee Output Process Steps Performance Management Committee output to be sent to HR Final individual scores Relative ranking Rationale for any changes made HR to consolidate final scores, relative ranking and feedback from Performance Management Committee for all employees HR to send final score sheet with relative ranking and feedback from Performance Management Committee (if any) to respective appraisers Appraisers to communicate final score, relative performance as well as developmental feedback to appraisee

Human Resources Final Score Relative Ranking (Top 20%; Middle 70%; Bottom 10%) Developmental Feedback



Appraisers to be provided training on performance feedback and counseling skills
