Quick Reference

The person responsible for undertaking an appraisal of an employee (the appraisee). The appraiser is often the employee's line manager, since he or she is thought to have the best knowledge of the employee's performance, attitude, and competency. Whilst the line manager may be the best placed to be the appraiser, he or she does not necessarily have the appropriate skills to undertake an appraisal interview, so in some organizations the appraiser is a specialist from the personnel department.
