Wrong Use of Employee Appraisals

My personal view regarding appraisals is that it has become a penalty tool to fight personnel vendettas and not for the purpose it was designed for. In most cases they are done haphazardly, discouraging and demoralizing employees.
In some cases where a lack or short fall is identified no robust solution is implemented to fill identified needs or gaps.
Hence in such circumstances it does not empower or develop skills and both the employees and the organisation suffer. Top performers opt out and those whose faces are loved or who are easily manipulated remain.
This appraisal tool is a powerful tool, but it can influence a business in both a positive and negative way depending on the way it is applied.
