The performance appraisal is the evaluation of on employee job performance in order to determine the degree to which the employee is performing effectively.  Performance appraisal should be designed to show more precisely how well workers are doing their jobs.

The Performance Appraisal System needs to be very transparent and helpful both to the employees and to the organization. The need is to get a feedback from appraisers and appraises working in the organization, about the current state of the PAS. Only after analyzing the current state of PAS, the human resource managers can go to the next step of improvements in PAS. A survey is therefore required.
