Thus the case study aims to explore and assess the existing performance appraisal practices of PIACT Bangladesh, a NGO of Bangladesh. The study examines the characteristics, elements, assessment approach and methods of performance appraisal, and methods of appraisal interview in PIACT. This discussion is followed by a critical assessment that identifies the effectiveness of current performance appraisal practices.
