Abstract
This study investigated the multifaceted factors influencing employee Performance Appraisal System in the Ministry of State for Provincial Administration, Nyamira District, Kenya. A target population of 76 employees was surveyed. A structured questionnaire was self-administered to the employees to collect data. Multiple regression analysis technique was used to explain the nature of the relationship between PAS and the factors that influence it. Results of the study showed that all the five factors: Implementation process (X1), interpersonal relationships (X2), rater accuracy (X3), informational factors (X4), and employee attitudes (X5) had a significant positive relationship with the performance appraisal system (Y). The regression results also showed that 55.1% of the variation in performance appraisal system can be explained by the changes in implementation process, interpersonal relationships, rater accuracy, informational factors and employee attitudes. With these findings, this study provides many implications for the implementation of performance appraisal systems. It shows that if these factors are taken into consideration by the ratees, the raters and the government policy makers, the PAS can be a good performance management tool.
