Appraisal Time


It's that time of year again. Have you been appraised at work yet?

Load of nonsense - a tick-box exercise to justify HR's existence, if you ask me. I have a theory that appraisal time invariably correlates with a drop in revenues.

The good manager manages his or her people on a daily or weekly basis, not once or twice a year. The clue is in the job title.

Got any good appraisal paragraphs I can cut and paste?

  3. Get them to write their own - It's occasionally quite a surprising exercise!
