This assessment also ensures that the outcome of the returns from the organization's investment in the training system is directly proprietary. Therefore, this study was carried out to examine the objective role of assessment of training programmes comprising the contents of training programmes, training programme inputs and the results of training programmes on the effectiveness of training programmes. The design of this study is quantitative based on survey methods. A total of 288 respondents comprising library staff at The Tun Abdul Razak Library (PTAR), in Shah Alam and PTAR are located in Malaysia. Analysis of data was carried out using the multivariate analysis techniques of Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) and the value of model strength is strong which is the Standardized Root Mean Square Residual value is 0.051 Results study finding that there is a significant relationship between the evaluation objectives of training programmes in all three dimensions i.e. content program, input and programme results. This study will be used by the human resource management division in implementing the evaluation of training programmes as one of the effectiveness in planning training programmes.</p> Romi Rampun@Ramlan, Zuraidah Zainol, Dewi Tajuddin ##submission.copyrightStatement## Tue, 12 Jan 2021 07:21:32 +0000 The Implementation of Results-Based Performance Management System in Public Elementary Schools <p style="text-align: justify;">The main purpose of this study was to identify the implementation of Results-Based Performance Management System (RPMS) in the public elementary schools in the Schools Division of Ifugao. The Stufflebeam’s Context, Input and Process model was used to identify the implementation of RPMS. The respondents were randomly selected. A total of 466 individuals were the respondents of this study. Survey questionnaire was the main instrument of data collection. The analysis of quantitative data was carried out using a weighted mean and Kruskal-Wallis test to achieve the objectives of the study. Results revealed that the Results-Based Performance Management System (RPMS) as a tool for performance management system in the public elementary schools in the Schools Division of Ifugao was highly implemented. Generally, the implementation of the four phases in RPMS were also highly implemented. Furthermore, there were significant differences in the perceived extent of implementation and the four phases of RPMS. It is then recommended that shared responsibility and agreement both rater and ratee in tracking and recording important events through utilizing the Performance Monitoring and Coaching Form (PMCF) must be consistently observed and properly recorded. Mentoring and giving feedback should be a continuous process and will therefore provide by the rater to improve the work and behavior of ratee. Likewise, strict and consistent compliance of DepEd Order No. 2, s. of 2015 is to be observed in the four phases of RPMS and the role of the Performance Management Team (PMT) ensuring ratees’ performance is properly assessed without any biased must be intensified.</p> Rashid Ceazar Galanto Ormilla ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 15 Jan 2021 08:24:08 +0000 Determinants of Integrity in the Implementation of Performance Appraisal System (PAS): The Case of Malaysia Enforcement Agency <p style="text-align: justify;">This study aims to measure the determinants of integrity of Performance Appraisal System (PAS) in Malaysia’s Public Sector. It focuses on the implementation of PAS in one of the enforcement agencies in Malaysia. Introduced in 2002 under the Malaysian Remuneration System (MRS), the PAS played an important role in pay-for performance. Employees’ performance and competency were measured to determine their eligibility for salary increment and promotion. Since inception, the implementation of appraisal system was inundated with criticisms due to poor implementation, inappropriate method of assessment and unjust distribution of rewards. Such apprehension had raised concern on integrity of PAS. Guided by organizational justice and work character ethics theories, the study aims to explore the determinants of integrity in PAS. A structured questionnaire was developed and a total of 412 of useable questionnaires were used in data analysis. The research findings disclosed that procedural, distributive, interactional justice and work character ethics are positively correlated with integrity of PAS. Regression analysis shows that interactional justice and work character ethics are the strongest predictors that influence the integrity of PAS with 45.6 and 45.4 percent of the total variability in integrity can be accounted for by these two variables. The significant relationship between variables indicates that the erosion of integrity in PAS can be attributed to poor behavioral and meager structural of performance appraisal system. Strategic and effective measures therefore are pivotal to elevate integrity in the practice of appraisal system in the context of MPS.</p> Norhaslinda Jamaiudin ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 15 Jan 2021 09:30:52 +0000
