Personnel evaluation in Latin America and Spain

June 20 2002 - A study by Bumeran, a HR technology company owned by Terra Lycos, focused on personnel evaluation in Latin American and Spanish companies.

The study looked at the issue from both company and employee perspectives.

The online survey received a total of 3,500 responses were received from all countries combined. This represented 450. Results from the employee perspective included:

  • 35% of respondents stated that they never receive evaluations from their employers;
  • 53% of Brazilian respondents said they were never evaluated;
  • 49% of Spanish respondents said that they received annual evaluations.

From the company side:

  • 50% of Brazilian companies stated that they never evaluate their employees.
  • 50% of the companies from Spain said that they conduct annual evaluations of their personnel.

In Brazil, Mexico and Spain a similar percentage of both employers and employees indicated that they know the internal procedures and evaluation methods, and when evaluations are done, they are clear and understandable.

Results varied considerably in Argentina, Chile and Venezuela but this may be due to the high level of unemployed respondents. Obviously the unemployed group does not receive any kind of evaluations.
