Richard Abugre Atia, Ibrahim D. Yakubu


The perception of employees on human resource practices of organizations affect their performance. When employees perceive human resources practices as being effective, their performance would be affected positively. This study therefore, explored the qualitative factors influencing the perception of employees’ on performance management practices of public institutions in Ghana. We explored the perception of some selected employees of the Bolgatanga Polytechnic on performance management practices of the Polytechnic. We found out that employees had a negative perception about performance management practices of the Polytechnic. This negative perception was grounded on the perceived non-involvement of employees in the performance management processes of the Polytechnic. The participants perceived that they were not given the needed attention and support to enable them achieve the goals of the performance management system of the Polytechnic.We concluded that performance management systems of Public institutions in Ghana are ineffective and fast becoming annual form filling exercises and not a means of managing performance of employees of those institutions.We recommended that it was time the central Government and other relevant bodies gave the needed attention to performance management of employees of public sector institutions in Ghana.
