Pentagon to Launch Employee Appraisal System in April 2016

HRThe Defense Department plans to introduce a new civilian employee performance appraisal program in April 2016, Federal Times reported Thursday.

Andy Medici writes the Pentagon will gradually subject the department’s 750,000 civilian workers to the three-tiered New Beginnings review system in the next few years and use the appraisals to assess the employees’ bonuses.

House legislators have introduced a version of the National Defense Authorization Act that calls for DoD to immediately roll out the system and facilitate training among employees and managers, according to the report.

Pete Randazzo, president of the National Federation of Federal Employees local 1690 chapter, said he expects the appraisal system to bolster active dialogue between employees and executives and result in a more productive workforce.

“I think the return on investment is going to be a big advantage,” he said.

“It will help with succession planning, make for better attrition rates and result in improvements in services.”
