Assessors are often fearful of the negative impact of their appraisal on the individual?s pay, promotion and on the job security, as well as its potential to damage or even destroy a previously excellent working relationship.

Employee development must be an ongoing process if organization is to retain its capacity to respond to the challenges of the future.
