The present study attempts to focus on the performance appraisal practice of the employees of local private manufacturing enterprises in Bangladesh. The researcher found that some enterprises use combined techniques to evaluate performance of the employees and some use single technique. Maximum of the enterprises provide feedback to the employees regarding their performance and all the enterprises use the results of the appraisals for taking decisions regarding confirmation of job, identification of training needs, promotion potential and salary increases of the employees. Maximum of the employees are ‘neither satisfied nor dissatisfied’ with the performance appraisal practice of their enterprises. The researcher recommends further study in this area to cover the performance appraisal practice of local private manufacturing enterprises after 1997 and to evaluate the performance appraisal practice of the employees of local private manufacturing enterprises in Bangladesh. The author also recommends a comparative study between the performance appraisal practice of local private business enterprises of Bangladesh and performance appraisal practice of multinational business enterprises.
