Performance Appraisal Workshop for Healthcare Managers

INTRODUCTION

Performance appraisal also referred to as performance review is a systematic and periodic process that assesses an individual employee’s job performance and productivity in relation to certain established criteria and organizational objectives. Performance appraisals are also a part of career development and consist of regular reviews of employee performance within the organization. In South Africa the Performance Management and Development System (EPMDS) has been effective from April 2007 “designed as a voluntary system to assist with performance management on salary levels 1 – 12 in departments and provinces that may choose to adopt the system.” (Department of Public Service and Administration, 2007). However, observations show that despite the period of sixteen (16) years of implementation several weaknesses exist with respect to the application and use of the system with poor consequences on the intended outcomes and impact on health care management and service delivery.

The workshop by the South African Institute of Health Care Managers (SAIHCM) will engage the members in a participative exercise with the aim of effecting better performance of health care managers in the application and use of the EPMDS in the health care system of South Africa in particular as the managers at all levels of health care are faced with the prospects of the National Health Insurance (NHI).
