What to do if NO Annual Appraisal Interview is Scheduled?

🔥NEW What if an annual performance appraisal is not being scheduled by your manager? Should you request the annual review yourself?
Or is it better to wait patiently, especially if no salary increase is expected anyhow?



No Yearly Appraisal Interview

I would go to the HRM DEPT and ask them to send a kind reminder to the manager.


Annual Review not Scheduled

Your HR BUSINESS PARTNER is responsible for making sure all managers follow a review process—if, the company has one or enforces it. Although there are plenty of under qualified managers that don't know how to write a review! In that case, they sometimes ask the employee to write it and they review it. However, that concept accomplishes nothing and does not help the employee learn or grown.
So lean on HR, it's better for everyone.


No Performance Appraisal Scheduled

I would suggest you see your MANAGER and arrange a time for your performance review. If your manager proposes a time, make sure you ask nicely if a calendar reminder can be sent to you.
It is also the employee's responsibility to remind their manager about the performance appraisal. Hope this helps.
