INTRODUCTION

1.1       BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Employee’s performance appraisal is one of the most critical functions of a

leader/manager and is a basic expectation of anyone in a supervisory role. In

many organization staff are being appraised to ascertain how much each

person contributed to the achievement of corporate goals and objectives. The

major objectives are usually profit maximization and service delivery.

Performance  Appraisal System has  been found to act as  strong and

indispensable Machinery  for   increase   in   organizational  productivity,organizational peace and harmony and organizational position in its environment Brown, M., J.S. Heywood (2005:43).

According to Schoenfeld and Shaw (1996) “the evaluation of performance is the control mechanism that provides not only feedback to individuals but also an organization assessment of how things are progressing.

Other reasons for performance appraisal according to Akpata (2001) are to provide feedback to the supervisor and input for administrative decisions i.e. promotion, tenure, future employment etc.

According to Ubeku (1984:188) “performance appraisal is basically concerned with a review of individual performance during a set period to identify his area of strength and weakness and establish targets for him to achieve within the overall corporate objectives of the organization.

Moreover Nwachukwu (1988:165) stakes that performance appraisal is the determination of how effective an individual has performed the job for which he was hired. In many cases any one can aptly say that performance appraisal is a periodic and systematic assessment of the work, a compliment of an employee either by himself or his superior in other to impact his effectiveness and adequacy on the job.

Performance appraisal is one of the management tools designed to achieve organizational objectives contributing to the subject matter. Orugbo (1978:24-25) states that individuals in an organization have their own.....
