Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.

Design

This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Findings

Traditional ritualistic annual appraisals are no longer favored, with many companies loosening the relationship between performance ratings and pay. The social and psychological aspects of appraisals are often overlooked. A balance of informal and formal processes is important, with continual feedback and dialogue. The skillset of managers is key to ensuring employees feel satisfied with the process and view outcomes as being fair. A good employment relationship thus leads to increased employee cooperation and performance, and increased outcomes for both the individual and the organization.

Originality

The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
