Staff Policies, Contracts and Appraisals

Staff policies provide guidance on the expectations of an organisation towards those who are employed by the organisation as well as what staff members can expect from the organisation in return for the provision of their individual and collective services to the organisation.

Staff contracts provide specific details as to the terms and conditions under which an individual is employed by an organisation.

A staff appraisal is a process of continual feedback over the course of a year on the services provided by an employee to the organisation and the opportunity for the employee to learn of the expectations of the organisation and what improvements are required.

These assist both the organisation and the employee in having a mutual understanding of requirements of the job as well as monitoring the effectiveness of the individual in delivering the services for which they were hired.
