Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about low performance appraisal:
I returned from a year’s maternity leave seven months ago. I just had a performance appraisal and it has upset and disgusted me. I am a very hard worker, well mannered and try to help colleagues to the best of my ability, but have found myself in a situation where I feel I am being mildly bullied.
During my appraisal with my supervisor today, I found I was marked unsatisfactory in the areas of attitude about work and work performance. This shocked me because I feel I am good in both these areas and have never been told any different. What shocked me more than anything was that my supervisor is rarely in the office and she said the appraisal reflected what she has heard from other people.
