Appraisal – Evaluation Form


Evaluation form is a critical component in the employee performance evaluation. Job position specific evaluation form can help the employee and the manager provide accurate feedback around the performance.

For the appraisal cycle to happen, each job position has to have an evaluation form attached. If the evaluation form is not attached, the manager or the HR manager may not be able to start an appraisal cycle for an employee.

Athri enables the Administrator to auto generate an evaluation form for a job position. This form is generated based on the activities defined under a job position. Employee fills out the tasks performed by him for each activity during the appraisal cycle. Rating is based on a one to ten scale with 1 denoting a poor performance and 10 being excellent.

Administrator has the choice of using the system generated evaluation form (or) a custom designed form. To design a custom form, refer the Form designer section.
