Performance Appraisal

Digital appraisals to evaluate your crew

Appraisals help develop individuals, improve organisational performance, and feed into planning.

They establish individual learning needs and enable organisational training needs analysis. Well-prepared and well-conducted performance appraisals provide unique opportunities to help all crew improve, develop, and make a more effective contribution to the organisations in which they work.

Performance Appraisal is a fast, efficient and secure means of driving quality

Designed to your specifications

With our Performance Appraisal feature you design the appraisal you need, with focus on relevant topics for the specific ranks on board, and the ability to set up an appraisal schedule relative to the actual service record onboard.

It makes it possible to create and schedule appraisal interviews onboard at sign-on, during the assignment and at sign-off, and optimise the questions in the digital form to ensure they are relevant to the specific evaluation period.

The scheduling mechanism ensures that the correct appraisal form is used and that everyone at the rank you target is notified of their upcoming scheduled performance appraisal.

Advantages of implementing Performance Appraisal

Transparent aid to performance measurement

Aid career, personal and organisational succession planning

Motivate through agreed aims and targets, achievement-recognition and feedback

Put the seafarer in focus and help with compliance with the MLC 2006

Present a valuable opportunity for coaching, counselling and feedback

Build trust, support and encouragement

Performance Appraisal is designed to facilitate a consistent process of continuous feedback and communication. It enables the company, the evaluator and the seafarer to work together to ensure that an employee’s performance is continually reviewed:

Features integrated into your learning platform

  • Digitalise your appraisal forms
  • Configure appraisal process phase and rank
  • Distribute to your learning platform online and onboard
  • Schedule and notify the crew
  • Onshore monitoring of completion by vessel
  • Ensure accountability and consistency
  • Feedback loop ensuring opportunities for improvement

Designed for consistency and fairness

Often appraisals are conducted for compliance but lack quality. Scoring is often arbitrary and comments vague, meaning valuable opportunities for improvement are lost.

Performance Appraisal allows individual appraisers to receive feedback through a simple dashboard.

Companies can manage the overall quality of the appraisals and communicate expectations to supervisors and managers.

Performance Appraisal creates a valuable feedback loop where each appraisal is quickly rated for its quality by the shore-based administrator.

Comments are returned to the onboard supervisor, confirming that the appraisal is ‘read’ and ‘reviewed’ and allows crew members to develop their own skills as appraisers.
