A newly joined trainee engineer asks his boss “What is the meaning of appraisal?”
Boss: Do you know the meaning of resignation?
Trainee: Yes I do.
Boss: So let me make you understand “What an appraisal is by comparing it with resignation”
Comparison study: Appraisal and Resignation
|In appraisal meeting they will speak only about your weakness, errors and failures.
|In resignation meeting they will speak only about your strengths, past achievements and success.
|In appraisal you may need to cry and beg for even 10% hike.
|In resignation you can easily demand (or get even without asking) more than 50-60% hike.
|During appraisal, they will deny promotion saying you didn’t meet the expectation, you don’t have leadership qualities, and you had several drawbacks in our objective/goal.
|During resignation, they will say you are the core member of team; you are the vision of the company how can you go, you have to take the project in shoulder and lead your juniors to success.
|There is 90% chance for not getting any significant incentives after appraisal.
|There is 90% chance of getting immediate hike after you put the resignation.
Trainee: Yes boss enough, now I understood my future.
