An Empirical Study of Performance Appraisal and Career Opportunities

Arngrim Hunnes, Ola Kvaløy, Klaus Mohn


Using survey data from a large international oil company, this econometric study explores the perceptions of
performance appraisal and career opportunities on one hand, and how this is dependent on variation in properties

achievement and appreciation is strengthened by time of service for leaders, but not for employees in
non-managerial positions. Finally, perceptions of performance appraisal and career opportunities depend on
characteristics of the local work environment, with positive influence from key phenomena like change
capability, competency focus, trust and identity.
