Week 5 Assignment

You own a nonunion company with 93 nonexempt employees. All of these employees pack books into boxes for shipment to customers throughout the United States. Because of wide differences in performance, you have decided to try performance appraisal, something never done before. Until now, you have given every worker the same-size increase. Now you want to measure performance and reward the best performers with bigger increases. Without any further information, which of the five types of appraisal formats do you think would be most appropriate? Be sure to justify your decision.  How would you introduce this system to employees working at your company?  Do you anticipate any complaints, or other comments, from employees after you implement your new system?  Design a simple format for the appraisal system based on the examples of the five types and criteria identified in Chapter 11.
