What performance criteria will be used? Include specific examples.
Who will conduct the appraisal, and will a standard or custom form be used?
How often will appraisals be conducted, and what are good HRM practices that can be used to ensure the appraisal does not become just an annual event?

Discuss what Richard could have done differently to begin that relationship.
Should Richard contact his supervisor in Toronto? Why, or why not?
