Appraisal is initiated by appraiser this will be done through ESS we are implementing ESS also.there is no goal setting & self client is using very traditional template in which they are having only attributes like job knowledge, Communication skill ,decision making power etc. with the scale of Unsatisfactory-Satisfactory-Good- Excellent.according to current practice appraiser fill the appraisal with the above scale, after filling all the attributes he will forward to any officer cader employee, because there is no fix reviewer, the reviewer can only change whatever appraiser fill or save as it is.

Rating giving by Appraiser

Eg.- S.No. Attributes Rating
