Traditionally, performance reviews are completed using preset performance appraisal forms or templates. An appraisal form should have detailed framework for measuring performance. Whether you are an employee, HR representative, or manager, you will have to complete and/or review performance appraisals. For this discussion, you will create a performance appraisal template that you believe would benefit the organization you currently or have previously worked for. Prior to beginning work on this exercise, read the article Viewpoint: How to Redesign Your Performance Appraisal Template (Links to an external site.). Additionally, review several performance appraisal templates available on the Internet.
Create a performance appraisal template that you feel meets the needs of your current or previous position and organization. The appraisal should include a rating scale and five competencies you would recommend the organization to evaluate staff on. At minimum, include a rating scale guideline (i.e., description of what each rating is composed of). Attach your performance appraisal template to the initial post.
In the body of your post, explain why you selected the five competencies and how your selections contribute to effective employee performance management, training, and development programs.
Your initial post must be a minimum of 300 words. Cite at least one scholarly source to support your response.
Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. Evaluate your peers’ performance appraisal templates and their explanations for their selections. Discuss whether your current or previous organization could also benefit from your peers’ competencies and why.
