Performance assessment responsibility of employee
The Performance Management System starts with the appraisee himself/herself. The appraisee assesses his/her own self first. Thus, he/she is an integral part of the assessment as well and it is his/her responsibility to start the process.
The Performance Management System does not begin with the appraiser. It begins with the appraisee who assesses his/her own performance. The first performance rating to be put on the assessment sheet is that of the appraisee. The appraisee looks back and assesses his/her own performance against the goals set earlier. Although the appraiser and reviewerÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s ratings do have a greater say in the final assessment, involving the appraisee gives him/her a chance to discuss and present his/her point of view to the appraiser. Thus, participation by the appraisee adds a value in itÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s own self to the process. It is important also because it ensures that the appraisee does not feel that he/she is responsible for performance only and the assessment is done by ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“themÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â. HR needs to be mindful of the fact that this aspect is critical for the employee community to have a buy-in for the Performance Management System as well as their drive towards execution and performance excellence.
