The Effects of Appraisal System on Employees’ Performance in the Public Service of Jamaica –A case Study of the Ministry Of National Security Introduction and Rationale According to Allen and Mayfield 1983, the performance appraisal is one of the components in the organizations that causes serious problems in the Human Resource Departments. Despite being a problematic and conflicting tool, ( Mayer& Davis (1999 ) Appraisal system is viewed as a basic tool in any organization that enables the employees to contemplate on their work and needs so as to improve on their production. The performance appraisal usually takes place after a set period of time depending on the rules of a given company. It may occur annually or semi-annually where the productivity of the employees is reviewed and discussed; weaknesses, strengths, opportunities and threats are all identified for caution and development of the organization ( Huselid, M. A. 1995 ). Some of the major factors that affect the effectiveness of an appraisal system include; communication, training, documented process and evaluation of results. Reward review, potential review and performance review are the major types of appraisals commonly used in the organizations.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
