appraisals on line


We have a well embedded appraisal system, but would like to make it electronic, so appraisor/ appraisee can complete on-line rather than on paper version.
Does anyone have experience of doing this and could recommend a supplier who can help, or any other advice?

  1. We have on-line appraisals
    We have an on line performance appraisal system. It enables us to capture data about performance more easily than paper-based appraisals. We also have training requirements and CPD on-line to make the planning and booking of training relatively administration free. We have in-house developers dedicated to the personnel and training department which has made this possible. I don’t know of companies who specialise in this kind of thing – you might want to do the same as us – find a couple of contract developers who can design a bespoke system for you. The technologies employed – ASP and SQL are pretty standard.

    You might want to try They specialise in this sort of thing and will work with you to develop a solution based on your needs. Their prices are also very reasonabe. Speak to Craig Worcester on 01434 381177 (which is his direct number). Hope this helps.

  3. Making the most of IT in appraisals

    One major area you need to consider is how can an on line version add rather than subtract value. Reluctant appraisal participants can use electronic means to side step any meaningful dialogue altogether.

    We have worked on a number of different ways to put appraisal systems on line. You can simply transfer what you have into online forms or storage, but to get some real value from what the web / your intranet can offer it’s worth thinking about capitalising on the data handling capabilities of on line systems to introduce new ways of appraising people, including 360o appraisal, and new ways of managing other performance data.

    There are additional opportunities that you can take advantage of if you are thinking of putting your appraisal systems on line. One particularly successful area we’ve worked on is running small, bespoke e learning programmes alongside the online appraisal systems giving people access to the help and advice they need to prepare for and participate in effective appraisals.

    If you would like to talk through the issues you’re facing please feel free to get in touch.

  4. Someone who could help
    I have experience of working with Brite HR who have developed a new approach called PerceptGen which would meet your needs and they are great value for money! The best person to call is Mark Doughty on 07764 181060 / 01993 832731.

  5. Its all about Resualts
    If you were to transform your existing paper based appraisal process to an electronic format, other than making it easier for users to use you will be gaining a huge advantage with regards to analysing the feedback and results, all the data entered could be manipulated to create some real strategic reports instead of being filled away somewhere. We did exactly that and must say are very happy with the results. The company who partnered us with the transformation Brite Human Resources. Have a look at their web site . Hope this helps.

  6. Talent Management System from KnowledgePool
    Our Talent Management System comprises a group of tailorable modules, based upon web technology, which is designed to support all aspects of personal development within an organisation.

    It supports organisations that need to manage the changing skills needed within their business and direct employee development retention and succession planning. It can be modified to reflect a client’s look and feel and provides a framework whereby:

    Organisations can:
    • Deliver concise messages about what the business needs to achieve
    • Demonstrate what skills are required to support those needs
    • Get individuals to own their development in line with the business
    • Manage the progressive learning of their people against these skills
    • Identify and manage where skills lie within the organisation
    • Identify what internal talent is available for new roles and what training may be required

    Individuals can:
    • Understand (perhaps for the first time) how their role supports the business
    • Understand what they can do to develop themselves, not only in their current role but also in preparation for the future – their career
    • Have ownership and play an active part in their own career and development
