Abstract

Purpose The purpose of this paper is to construct an instrument to assess employeeperceived performance appraisal congruency and then to use the scale to predict employee attitudes about their performance appraisal systems.Designmethodologyapproach The scale was developed using 28 subjectmatter experts and researcher knowledge of the extant literature. The scale was then completed by a sample of 135 individuals using internet administration.Findings Regression analyses showed that performance appraisal congruency predicted overall system satisfaction, perceived usefulness and fairness. Supplementary analyses of the performance appraisal congruency items were conducted so as to refine the original instrument for future research.Research limitationsimplications Limitations of the study include the interviews conducted to develop the instrument were conducted in a single organization the study used an internet sample that was made up of university alumni all measures were selfreport and single item measures were used as the criterion variables. The findings support the utility of the use of the PE fit model in performance management systems. Future research should assess outcomes that would be of interest to organizations, such as the relationships with performance system satisfaction and employee commitment and turnover.Practical implications If employees perceive that the performance appraisal system is congruent with their expectations, then positive outcomes should be expected.Originalityvalue While congruency has been linked to important outcomes such as job satisfaction, organizational commitment, turnover intention, and actual turnover, it has not been used within a performance appraisal framework.
