In simple words employee appraisal is a regular review of the contributions and performance of the employee towards the organization. This will provide an opportunity to reward and recognize the employees. At the same time they will feel valued for the work they do. After evaluating the performance of the employees, you can decide whether they should be rewarded with promotion, salary increase or bonuses.

With an effective performance and appraisal system, the company’s culture as well as the employee morale can be enhanced. With proper appraisal management, a creation of a more people focused culture is possible. Also the employees will tend to stay with such an environment which focuses on their progress and dedication.
