A study on Performance Appraisal with reference to Software Industries in India

Kalpana Koneru


Human Resource Management is a management function that helps managers to Recruit, Select, Train and Develop members for an organization. Performance appraisal may be understood as the assessment of an individual’s performance being measured against such factors as job knowledge, quality and quantity of output, initiative, leadership abilities, supervision, dependability, cooperation, judgment, versatility, health and the like. 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. The type of research chosen is quantitative in nature. The research is undertaken to ascertain the views/opinions of the employees working with the company and to suggest appropriate modifications about the existing PAS. Structured questionnaire has been prepared and discussed personally with the respondents. The sample size will be restricted to 100 respondents chosen by applying stratified random method. The methods adopted for the performance appraisal were 360-degree appraisal, check list, rating scale, management by objective etc. that are commonly found among the information technology companies in Bangalore. The employees want their appraiser to give the feedback to them.
