Appraisal is a central part of performance management and ef has creatively expanded approaches to appraisal particularly through team-based appraisal.


The ef approach to appraisal and performance management

A key feature of the ef perspective is the combination of business imperatives with the human factor. Thus the ef approach to appraisal and performance management joins human endeavour and commercial priorities by linking key performance areas with personal and professional objectives.  The appraisal review philosophy is "firm on facts, reasonable on reasons."  The appraisal planning philosophy is continuous improvement.

How ef appraisal schemes work

Strategic goals are rigorously and meaningfully translated into team and individual objectives through two-way communication mechanisms. People are clear of their roles and goals; they experience the personal and commercial benefits in achieving objectives. People feel in on things and want to hit their targets.

The Human Resource function becomes more of an enabler and less of a checker.

Policies are derived directly from business drivers and corporate aspirations.

HR budgets deliver to business needs.

These achievements are reached partly due to the integrity of scheme design and partly due to how schemes are introduced.
