What is a Peer-Appraisal? Meaning.

A Peer-Appraisal is a method in which the performance of the employee is evaluated by work colleagues rather than by his manager. The method can be used as an introduction phase of an appraisal process by the manager of the employee. An advantage of doing so is that it provides the employee and the employer with the opportunity to involve a wider range of opinions in the appraisal process. It can be combined with a Self-Appraisal to reflect the employees own thoughts about his performance and the reasons behind it.

Advantages of doing peer reviews include a decrease of subjectivity, bringing in a wider range of opinions, helping to increase the size of the future-oriented part of the manager appraisal. A disadvantage is the time and effort that needs to be spent. For a motivated and social coherent group of people this disadvantage should be no obstacle.

Also called Peer Review. An extended variant of this technique is the 360-Degree Feedback method.
