1. Do you think the San Diego Zoo’s old appraisal system needed to be changed?
I think it needed to be changed because before they weren’t taking it seriously and it was a low priority to them. Now with the new system the employees will get raises depending on their performance which in turn will increase company performance.
2. What do you think are the pros and cons of using a Web-based appraisal system?
The pros of using a web-based appraisal system is that it is convenient because a large group of people can be rated in less time and it will control personal bias. The cons of using a web-based appraisal system is that it gives too little attention to the overall performance of workers and in person interviews are more effective in rewarding or pointing out deficiencies in workers.
3. How do you the new appraisal system will affect employees and the types of employees who work at the zoo?
The new appraisal system will affect employees positively for those employees that are looking to grow with the company and be a part of the growth. When an employee is given targets and goals to reach, then they know what they are working towards and they are aware that if they reach the targets and goals there is a gain for them at the end. With this set, you will get employees that are willing to do the work and the time to get a job done right.
