Appraisal Interview

Appraisal interview is an interview in which the supervisor and subordinate review the appraisal and make plans to remedy deficiencies and reinforce strengths. Interviews like these are often uncomfortable. Few people like to receive—or give—negative feedback. Adequate preparation and effective implementation are therefore essential.


Appraisal Interview is a discussion following a performance appraisal in which supervisor and employee discuss the employee's rating and possible remedial actions.
