Performance Appraisal, Performance Evaluation, Job Satisfaction, Job Performance, Perceived Effect, Perceived Organizational Impact
The purpose of this qualitative case study was to investigate how women law enforcement officers in a medium-size, suburban police department perceived performance appraisals and the effects of performance appraisals on job satisfaction and job performance. This study also examined the impacts of job satisfaction and job performance on organizations. One-on-one participant interviews were conducted, to capture the women law enforcement officers’ perceptions of performance appraisals. Ten women law enforcement officers from a medium-size, suburban police department in New Jersey participated in the study, and their anonymity was maintained to elicit transparent responses. Future research conducted on this subject could utilize a sample pool with race, multiculturalism, and diversity. Studies could investigate the ways appraisals affect the world of policing and further explore the relationship multiculturalism- and race-linked factors to job satisfaction and performance. This study may provide further incentive for job candidates of various genders and races to pursue the policing profession.
