Staff Performance Appraisal Form: Guidance Notes For Appraiser


An effective appraisal process looks backwards to review the appraisee’s past job performance over the whole of the appraisal review period and forward to agree objectives and improve future job performance.

These Staff Appraisal Guidance Notes explain what is expected from the Appraiser in preparing the Appraisal Form (Appraiser) (Part 2) prior to the appraisal interview. There is a separate appraisal form and accompanying guidance notes for the Appraisee.

Each of the following headings are included in the Appraisal Form (Appraiser) (Part 2) and covered in these Guidance Notes:

1. Duties & Responsibilities 
2. Discussion Points - including column for recording discussion assessment 
3. Objectives (prior year) and performance - including column for comments 
4. Objectives/Targets for next 12 months 
5. Training and Development Support 
6. Equality and Diversity (Equal Opportunity) Policy.

This template is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
