Performance Assessment of Employees in Organisation – A Case Study

Veena Datar ., Manorama Saini ., Bhasha Shukla Sharma .


 A dynamic and growing organization needs to continually review its structure and systems, creating new roles and responsibilities. The identification of employee potential to ensure the availability of people to do different jobs helps to motivate employees in addition to serving organizational needs. Competency mapping makes performance management systems more measurable and scientific [1]. A critical factor related to an organization’s long term success, is its ability to measure how well employees perform and to use that information to ensure that performance meets present standards. Without performance information, the employees can only guess as to whether they are working towards the right goals in the correct way and to the desired standard [2]. Awareness of employees about mapping systems and up gradation of process is necessary for overall development of individual and organization. The present paper emphasizes on performance assessment through e-MAP for improvement in productivity, organizational development, individual growth and development. It also helps to assess the training needs of an individual in the organization. The investigation was carried out by taking BHEL, Bhopal as a sample organization.
