A subordinate appraisal is an appraisal system whereby managerial employees are evaluated by their subordinates.
Subordinate appraisal refers to an evaluating tool in which subordinates assess their supervisors’ performance. This evaluation system has some important benefits. These are briefly discussed below:
- Accuracy: Employee appraisals of their managers are sometimes regarded as more accurate or correct than general manager evaluations of supervisor performance. Because subordinates are more engaged in day-to-day communication with their supervisors than is the manager of the supervisor. So, they observe more consistently and directly the way the supervisor performs her/his responsibilities. The manager of a supervisor spends more time performing and delegating his duties and responsibilities than observing the supervisor in daily activities.
- Sense of Value: An indirect advantage of this appraisal is that it gives the employees a greater sense of importance or value within the company and empowers them. They feel that they possess a voice and their feelings have a value to the company toward the management’s effectiveness.
- Improvement: Collective subordinate feedback gives crucial inputs on areas managers can improve.
- Employee Requirements: Subordinate appraisal is regarded as a tool for helping managers, but generally, it can reveal the common requirements of employees.
