Checklist of Common Errors in Performance Appraisals
Martin Dale, USA
I was asked to make a list of common mistakes by managers in performance appraisals.
G.T. Milkovich and J.M. Newman report the following ones (Compensation, 2002):
1. Halo Effect: a favorable rating for all job duties based on performance in one duty in which the employee is a 'saint'.
2. Central Tendency: rating all employees close to the midpoint of the scale (irrespective of their actual performance).
3. Recency Effect: judging overall effectiveness on the basis of recent experience.
Some others I found:
4. Subjectiveness: based on gut feeling
5. No/Poor Follow-up
6. Improper Preparation
Who can help me and provide further common mistakes or biases in employee appraisals? Thanks!
