International Journal of Business and Management , 2011, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v7n1p22
Abstract: 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 and characteristics of the local working environment on the other hand. Perceptions indicate that performance and payoff are better balanced among women than among men. Moreover, the connection between perceived 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.
