InterraIT’s appraisal system is a combination of formative & summative approaches.

The performance criteria measurement is largely metrics driven following weighted averages of category ratings. Besides capturing quantifiable results, significant traits & behavioral aspects are also captured using the summative approach. To minimize subjectivity & rater bias, the process includes an employee self-appraisal followed by manager & reviewer inputs before normalization. InterraIT believes in differentiation on the basis of performance & the same is supported through the proven appraisal system.
To further strengthen the system, a 180 degree feedback system is also being piloted.
