The paper 'Appraisal of the Performance Evaluation Systems in the Workplace - Cineworld Group " is a good example of a management case study. The Cineworld Group is one of the leading cinema groups in the UK and Ireland. It has a portfolio of 74 cinemas and 770 screens that operate under the Cineworld brand (Cineworld, 2010). It was founded in 1995. The group is committed to offering its customers a very wide range of films (Landy and Conte, 2009). The group shows Hollywood blockbusters and is one of the biggest exhibitors of Bollywood films in the UK.
The group has also introduced Tamil films and a wide mix of independent art-house and foreign films. The firm is committed to providing an excellent level of customer service and a wide range of products. Performance evaluation/measurement methods are based on a few aspects. Performance evaluation/measurement methods are employed to judge a particular employee’ s work performance to enable the employee to gain the jobs’ benefits (Clements-Croome, 2006). Employee’ s appraisal, career development, and performance reviews are based on the performance evaluation/measurement methods. Performance evaluation/measurement of employees is based on the analysis of their success, failures, strengths, and weaknesses (Moseley and Dessinger, 2009).
This helps the firm to know the worthiness of its employees. Performance evaluation/measurement of employees involves observation of the productivity of individual employees towards the work assigned to him/her in a given period of time to prove their ability (Landy and Conte, 2009). Although performance evaluation/measurement methods are used for the above-mentioned objectives, some of them are used for performance appraisal of the employee. Performance evaluation/measurement methods are based on three main aspects: quantity and quality of work done, time for doing the work, and benefits to the firm in terms of costs (Watkins and Leigh, 2009).
Performance evaluation/measurement methods give employees feedback about their work, record the work of employees to give them a few rewards from the firm and provide employees with opportunities to further their careers (Biech, 2008). They also enable employees to improve their performance via training and coaching sessions that are provided by the firm’ s management. Work experiences of employees are often influenced by common techniques employed by a firm’ s management.
