Abstract : Previous research on performance appraisals has primarily concerned the reliability and validity of measurement instruments and techniques. Very little research has dealt with the milieu where the actual performance appraisal occurs. In order to help remedy this situation, a conceptual model is presented which highlights the interactive relationships among employee commitment, organizational climate, and performance appraisal systems. The model addresses four key issues: what are the organization's objectives in the appraisal system?, what conditions facilitate or inhibit the accomplishment of these objectives?; how do employee commitment and organizational climate affect these conditions?; and what reciprocal relationships appear likely?
