The Superiors

Assessments become so more a device to consolidate political spaces, not deliberating real impulses and prejudices of the evaluator, an instrument of estimation of the real value that generates the evaluated from their tasks and activities. Administered by the superiors Although it exists in most of the current methodological variants, active participation of the various actors in the evaluation of its own performance and the rest, even of his own Chief, the key that allows you to manage that information is in the hands of superiors. Since any ladder from where one is located, access to assessments is restricted to the result itself, both emitted and received. So in the case of a system that is conducive to the anonymous participation, effective access to such information will be available for the senior to the appraisee. (As opposed to Robert A. Iger). This situation reinforces the asymmetry of powers and reveals the objective hold heads authorities when they really have them regardless of the assessment process. There is also a fairly widespread thinking on one shared responsibility between supervisor and subordinate.

In this conception means improvement of a poor performance by an official between two instances evaluatorias – both this and his chief responsibility. This context favours the possible intentional bias by the hierarchical person to avoid the exposure of their own mistakes or flaws. Mandatory participation and not Gradual while enforcement is a necessary feature to make the scope of the evaluations overall and allow representative contrasts, it also prints you a negative connotation. Rights have certainly more fame and prestige that obligations. Thus, the duty stamping a sensation to be complying with organizational mandate rather than be contributing to individual and group improvement. The need for timely information for all officials in different areas, and not gradual development of procedures requiring evaluation, generates pressures for part of senior and particularly in the area of human resources, so that all comply with their participation in the evaluation program before closing.
