The objectives of performance appraisal are as follows:

Performance appraisal plays a role in making decision about salary increase. Normally salary increase of an employee depends on how he is performing his job. The hike in salary to different employees may be according to their efficiency and ranking.
 

2. Promotion

 
Performance appraisal plays a role in making decision about promotion. Normally internal promotion of an employee depends on how he is performing his job. There is continuous evaluation of his performance either formally or informally. Most of the organizations often use a combination of merit and seniority for promotion. Performance appraisal precedes promotion decision.
 

3. Training and Development

 
Performance appraisal tries to identify the strengths and weaknesses of an employee on his present job. This information can be used for devising training and developing programmes appropriate for overcoming weakness of the employees. In fact, many organisations use performance appraisal as means for identifying training needs of employees.

4. Feedback

 
Performance appraisal provides feedback to employees about their performance. It tells them where they stand. A person works better when he knows how he is working, how his efforts are contributing to the achievement of organizational objectives. Besides, if they know their weakness, they will try to overcome them.
 

5. Pressure on employees

 
Performance appraisal puts a sort of pressure on employees for better performance. If the employees are conscious that they are being appraised in respect of certain factors and their future largely depends on such appraisal, they tend to have positive and acceptable behaviour in this respect. Thus, appraisals can wok automatically as a control device.
