Furthermore, the participants show the positive perception towards performance appraisal in term of improvement in staff performance and providing two ways communication or feedback. Nevertheless, negative perception is presented in dealing with the current performance appraisal suitability and uncertainty either the appraisal system achieves the objectives or not.
