Types of Appraisals Utilized
If you have more than one department—say a sales and shipping department—do you utilize the same appraisal for both departments? Often sales personnel receive rewards and incentives based on sales quotas and achievements where someone who works in the shipping department, while still important, needs to be rated on a different scale.
No one wants to have ten different types of appraisals, but whether you utilize a 360 Degree appraisal form or a simple standard form, you can adjust each to fit the department where the employee works.
For example if you utilize an appraisal form with ratings geared toward sales personnel with questions such as “Did the employee meet sales quotas" or “How do the company’s customer feel about the employee?" or “Did the employee meet or exceed profits set?"—then these types of questions will be irrelevant for someone who packs items, ships them and doesn’t work with customers.
Bright Hub offers many appraisal form templates you can download and modify. Whether you determine the 360 Degree form or a more standard appraisal is right for your workforce, you only need to choose one and modify it for each department.
When the time comes to complete the appraisal, if you’re using the right form, the process will be easier.
