Ethical System for Employee Performance Appraisal in Practice



ABSTRACT. Appraisal is one of the most important tools in the management of human resources. However, made in an inappropriate way, it can be harmful rather than useful. Therefore, one should, from the very beginning, follow a set of rules thanks to which employees will perceive the system as ethical. The article is aimed at defining ethical aspects of staff appraisal and regulations governing the creation of moral or ethical appraisal system in a given firm. However, the main goal is not to describe and characterize the system, chosen criteria and methods, but to identify ethical aspects of particular elements in the entire process. The article presents a model of assessment, namely the one adopted by Würth Poland Sp. z.o.o.
