Hi I am trying to conduct a report on performance appraisal from different companies. Please share your thoughts on your own organisations performance appraisal which I can then compare against my own company to conduct my report.

In my company our appraisals are pretty fair, staff are rated against criteria rather than their own behaviour which means management can't rate them purely on any personal issues. However there is a lack of support from management, e.g. when issues are raised in appraisals from staff, there is no support after that to overcome the issue. Many staff have told me this is the reason why they feel there is no point addressing their situations in the meeting if there is no support.

I would like to hear other people's views on their own organisation performance appraisals. Please share in order to help me complete my report.
