Which Employee Appraisal model can you implement with GFoundry?

GFoundry allows you to define several types of appraisal models to evaluate an employee’s performance:

  • Top-down appraisal
  • Management by objectives (MBO)
  • Self-assessment
  • 360 degree feedback


Top-Down Appraisal

A Top-Down Appraisal is most common and involves an employee evaluation by a direct manager and is based on the completion of pre-set goals defined by management. Productivity, behaviour and goal completion can be measured. Outcomes of this method can be used for wage raise and promotions.

Management by Objectives (MBO)

Management by Objectives, also called MBO, involves management and employee collaboration in defining goals. Once goals have been set and agreed upon, management uses the outcomes to provide feedback.


Self-Assessment is a performance assessment made by the employee.

The employee will compare his actual performance to the goals that were set for him. Outcomes of this method are generally goal attainment, problem solving skills, communication skills and teamwork.

There is generally a professional development or growth plan developed by the employee that lists ways in which he plans to increase his or her performance. This may include additional training, education or higher productivity goals.

360 Degree Feedback

360 Degree Feedback includes feedback from piers, colleagues, management and even business partners and/or clientes.

Feedback is gathered from multiple perspectives, based on the relationship between both partes and can be used as a roadmap to develop the employee’s competencies and define goals.

This method is generally not linked to better pay or promotion. It is used mainly for self-development.
