From the Paper:

"The majority of companies have a formal or informal performance appraisal system, which, if done correctly, will recognize and appreciate successes as well as address and offer suggestions on how to make improvements. An appraisal is a structured procedure of facilitated personal reflection that permits employees to review their professional responsibilities and outcomes and identify strengths and weaknesses. These evaluations are a valued educational process that establish the foundation for enhancing personal development and contribute to partnerships between a worker and his/her employer. They provide companies with the opportunity to measure their personnel's organizational assistance and determine where they would work best as part of a larger team effort. When completed appropriately, the performance appraisal includes a standard evaluation form, performance measures, feedback guidelines, and disciplinary procedures."
