Approving and Declining Submitted Performance Reviews

After an employee completes a self-assessment, the employee submits the review to a manager who then reviews the employees achievements against objectives. The manager add comments to the self assessment, provides a rating, and then approves or declines the review.

In a multitiered organization, if the manager accepts the review, it is automatically moved to the next-level manager for approval. In some organizations, multiple managerial reviews are not required, and an approved review is returned to the employee for review, discussion, and acknowledgement.
