≪Organizer Abstract≫
Among HR systems, performance evaluation and its feedback to employees are especially important, because they can strongly affect the levels of their work motivation and competence development. Recently, performance appraisal becomes increasingly recognized as a performance management tool rather than an input for determination of salary or promotion, due to drastic changes of business environment and accordingly HR systems. Thus, more research needs to be done regarding realization of better performance appraisal and its effective use for performance management. This session covers a quick overview of current state of performance management in Japanese organizations, followed by studies on performance evaluation, communication and feedback from managers to their subordinates, and the impact of the quality of their relationships on the subordinates' development and performance. Discussion will include how the three elements (appraisal, feedback and manager-subordinate relationships) are related to each other, and possibly lead to better performance management.
