The results of this analysis supported the findings from the Kruskal-Wallis test. Additionally, reasons for low customer satisfaction and productivity were identified as a result of these tests. To correct these deficiencies, it is recommended that additional training be made available to directly improve productivity. Implementing a defect tracking system will help identify and correct or eliminate defects in finished products. Also, project managers can more effectively delegate assignments based on competency levels which should help increase productivity and product defects.

A performance appraisal according to Understanding Business, Tenth Edition, page 308, is “An evaluation that measures employee performance against established standards in order to make decisions about promotions, compensation, training or termination.” A performance appraisal has six steps.

Group to analyze this case study and attempt to uncover the issues, resolve the problem with Mr. Singh, and ultimately, examine ways in which the problem could have been avoided. Since the peer appraisal process was the method utilized, we will first explore the general advantages and disadvantages of peer appraisals. If the process of performance appraisals is formal and properly structured, it helps employees clearly understand their roles and responsibilities, as well as gives direction to the individual’s performance. It helps to align the individual performances with the organizational goals and also assesses their performance. Specifically, peer appraisals can provide the most accurate and valid input about a fellow coworker.
1.0 Introduction Performance appraisal defined by Schneier and Beatty as, "...the process of identifying, measuring and developing human performance in organizations" (as cited in Danielle S. Wiese, M. Ronald Buckley,1998). By refer to the Wikipedia, performance appraisal, employee appraisal, performance review is a method by which the job performance of an employee is evaluated in terms of quality, quantity, cost, and time relatively by their own superior. Some more, performance evaluation is a constructive process to acknowledge the performance of a non-probationary career employee. An employee’s evaluation shall be sufficiently specific to inform and provide the direction to the employee in the performance of his/her duties.

The study of human relations helps us understand how people fulfill both personal growth needs and organizational goals in their careers. Many organizations are beginning to realize that an employee's life outside the job can have a significant impact on work performance, and some are developing training programs in human relations that address employees and their needs. Human relations is not a set of fool proof techniques for solving job satisfaction or worker motivation but rather, it gives people an understanding of the human element and what motivates workers to possibly perform at higher levels. This paper will briefly examine the Human Relations Approach and how various theories have contributed to this approach. Finally, this paper will discuss the organization that I work for, and how the Human Relations Approach is revealed within my organization.
Foot and Hook (2008:249) displays the work of Randell et al. (1984) which suggests that for most employers there are three main uses for appraisal reviews: Performance, Potential and Reward. Therefore in summary, performance reviews focus on establishing the current levels of performance, identifying potential for future improvements along with any development necessary for succession and finally as an approach to distributing rewards, often of monetary value, for outstanding performance. As simple as performance appraisal may seem, “it is often suggested that as many as two-thirds of all appraisal schemes are abandoned or altered substantially within
