Performance Management System

At SJVN, we believe that Human Resource Management (HRM) is the strategic management of the employees, who individually and collectively contribute to the achievement of the strategic objectives of the organisation. A company should first become aware of the needs of its employees, and at a later stage, understand and evaluate these needs in order to make its employees perceive their job as a part of their personal life, and not as a routine obligation.

SJVN has understood the capabilities of its human resources and in order to foster a culture of openness, honesty and integrity have put in place systems, processes and policies so at to ensure strategic partnership of HR with organisation vision. One of such policies introduced by SJVN was Performance Management System.

A robust and transparent Performance Management System was introduced in SJVN in the 2012-13, as a tool to create an objective based performance driven culture wherein the performance is encouraged. PMS is a process by which organisations align their resources, systems and employees to strategic objectives and priorities. It measures individual performance vis-à-vis the targets and becomes a basis for promotions and payment of performance related pay. In this way the individuals aligns his targets in line with the targets of is organisation. Performance management System includes activities which ensure that goals are consistently being met in an effective and efficient manner.

The PMS system works to realign the organizational objectives with individual objectives- thrust is upon performance driven culture. The basic purpose is to evaluate differing levels of performance and to identify Executives to take on higher responsibilities by identifying the high and low performance. The system in transparent and provides opportunity to the appraise to have sufficient discussion with his reporting officer regarding his performance and its assessment.
