HRM is associated with sophisticated and intensive performance assessment, typically
involving performance-related pay. The assessment of performance can be beneficial to
personal development. We considered performance management as an integrated system.
Theoretical descriptions of such systems emphasise their value to the link between
individual employee performance and the achievement of strategic goals. However, there
are philosophical issues of what precisely represents 'good' performance, and further
technical problems of measurement. We completed the chapter with a critique of appraisal
methods and a discussion of recent attempts to objectify their use.
