Performance Appraisal

Tell them what they’re doing well… and not so well

Support to create and implement performance appraisal solutions

Performance appraisal tends to be something businesses either embrace, ignore or conduct in a fairly half-hearted manner (because they know they should do them but don’t really want to).

When tailored to your specific business and used regularly, performance appraisals can have a significant positive impact on your business.

An effective performance appraisal system incorporates regular feedback, frequent employee/line manager check-ins and future-focused skill development of employees.

With our help, you can have a performance appraisal solution in place that adds value to your business.

There’s been a lot in the press about how businesses are no longer doing performance appraisals. What’s actually happening is that businesses are getting smarter with more effective processes. Find out more in our Performance Appraisal article.

Performance Appraisal FAQs

What are the options for performance appraisal? Is it complicated?

Performance appraisal doesn’t have to be complicated; it just needs to work for your business.

The simplest performance appraisal solution provides elementary, printed templates to capture an individual’s targets, key achievements and development areas. The summary information is collated in spreadsheets enabling basic analysis as part of the business review processes.

At the sophisticated end of the range, targets will be aligned to business goals, and desired changes in business capabilities will be driven by business strategy. The solution may be provided through a web-hosted system using online templates that capture information from the employee, the manager and the employee’s peers. This 360-degree view on individual, team and department performance feeds into the analysis of overall business performance, as well as supporting succession planning and resource management.

There are many different options and we can show you different approaches and discuss the pros and cons of each.

How much will a performance appraisal solution cost?

Given the huge variety of solutions available it’s very difficult to give a clear price guide.

  • A very simple solution could be as little as £500;
  • A sophisticated, web-based solution with training for managers and employees could be £15,000.

Call us to chat through your requirements. We’ll give you a high-level cost estimate so you can see whether the numbers are aligned to your budget without committing hours to meetings.

Having the forms is one thing, but how do I conduct a performance appraisal meeting?

Knowing how to deliver constructive feedback is vital to making any performance appraisal process work. We can provide training to you and your managers on this exact topic. 

We can also provide training to your employees on how to get the best out of their appraisal meeting. 

Give us a call and we’ll work with you to decide what level of training you and your team would benefit from.

Do you provide training in performance appraisal?

As well as the process, templates and any systems, successful implementation of performance appraisal solutions include training of those involved.

The only way a performance appraisal solution will add value is if it’s used effectively by trained staff.

We provide the training you need. Again, there are many options regarding training, from general guidance on the templates and processes, through to detailed training for employees and managers on target setting and conducting performance reviews.

We’ll discuss the training needs and approach so you can decide what works best for you.

Do you only work with specific industries or business sizes?

We’ve experience in many different sectors and have worked with businesses of all sizes. 

When it comes to performance appraisal, this does matter.  What works and is needed for a large accountancy practice is very different to what works and is needed for a small retailer.

You can pull on our experience of creating performance appraisal processes for businesses similar to yours.

See our general FAQ for more information on our approach and services.
