Abstract

In contrast to previous research on HR performance evaluation in quality organisational environments, which is mainly confined to the literature and theory-based studies, this paper provides a partial answer to the question: 'what is a typical quality-oriented HR performance evaluation system'? In this study, an attempt is made to highlight the key generic criteria of a quality-driven HR performance evaluation system through a questionnaire survey of Scottish-based quality-driven organisations. It allows the reader to map the most important issues in HR performance evaluation in a quality management context. In addition, the study analyses the degree of effectiveness of the currently conducted HR performance evaluation in identifying training needs, employee motivation, improvement in future performance and overall performance of the organisation. Finally, suggestions are offered for moving towards a quality-based HR performance evaluation.
