Abstract : Conflicting requirements inherent in performance appraisals for salary administration are contrasted to performance appraisal for counseling or training of the individual. An intermediate approach is suggested which resolves these conflicts and provides worthwhile feedback to the individual, while at the same time administering salary actions consistently with performance. The process utilizes work-related goals. The supervisor works with the individuals to find challenging work assignments for all his subordinates and evaluates the work, pointing out specific areas of weakness or of unusually high quality work. Comparison is made to an imagined average or typical individual. By relating the quality of the work performed by different individuals (as measured by the common traits score), the supervisor can recommend salaries consistent with the quality of the work accomplishments of his people.
