Reduce stress related absenteeism in the workplace by conducting effective performance appraisals.
Performance appraisals are an important part of performance management. They are one of the tools used to manage performance in the workplace. usually carried out by line managers.
Most businesses should implement performance appraisals but many still do not see the benefits to their organisation-believing it to be a waste of time and money with little value.
In 2009 the CIPD carried out a survey and found 81% of organisations used individual appraisals.
The performance appraisal can be seen as a stick by the employee if not carried out sensitively and positively. it should link business goals, people development, individual and team performance. Effective, timely and constructive appraisal systems can motivate, give clear vision and objectives and will make staff feel valued and rewarded. therefore, increasing productivity and profitability for the business. Stress related absenteeism is then reduced which in turn creates less stress and pressure in the workplace.
The CIPD says there are five key elements of the performance appraisal:
- Positive re-inforcement
- Exchange of views
There is no right or wrong way to conduct an appraisal-but all managers who are expected to carry out the appraisal reviews should have some training.
