The focus of performance appraisal has shifted in recent years away from strict evaluation toward improving performance and developing employees by means of honest and open discussion. With improvement and development as guiding principles, the appraisal process focuses on results and behaviour, not personality; issues and problems, not subjective gripes; constructive development to improve performance; and the motivation and growth of the employee. In our “HR Issue” Column for this edition, we discuss “How To Prepare for Appraisals”.
The level of intervention and transformation carried out by our Company in respect of some government assets is also featured in this bumper edition.
