Evaluation of the Use of the Performance Appraisal and Reward System in Improving Employee Performance: A Survey of Selected Public Sector Organizations (Published)

To fulfil their fundamental obligations, public sector organisations are required to offer the population high-quality services. To carry out these duties, these organisations must have a qualified workforce (personnel). As a result, the workforce of the organisation needs to be sufficiently motivated to maintain pace with the organisational goal. This is accomplished through performance evaluation, which assesses the performance to ensure that employees are keeping up with their tasks and the reward system, which serves to maintain employee motivation. This study’s main goal is to investigate how performance evaluation and reward systems are used to improve employee performance. Using both primary and secondary sources, data were collected. The findings indicate that organisations under evaluation use performance appraisal and reward systems before, during, and after staff transfers and deployments both inside and outside of MDAs. This management tool is one of the key determining variables in such transfers and deployments. When workers stray from their job descriptions, the company uses it as a deterrent. The outcome also shows that one of the challenges in implementing performance evaluation and reward systems is politics. The report recommends that the performance evaluation and reward system be based on merit and free of politics in its conclusion.
