Reducing Supervisor Bias in Appraisals
Caroline Kangalee, Member
I have found it valuable to reduce supervisor bias by allowing the employee to complete his/her own (in draft) report
This gives the supervisor and counter signing officer the opportunity to see what the supervisee actually thinks of himself/herself, the assigned duties and performance levels/metrics achieved.
Usually it reveals the halo effect if the person is a "problem employee" and good all-round performers usually downgrade themselves.
