The purpose of the study was to establish the relationship between performance appraisal and employee productivity.Specifically, it sought to assess the relationship between performance review, performance feedback and action plan and employee productivity. This focus was informed by the literature advanced by scholars such as Sulsky and Keown (2008), St-Onge, Morin, Bellehumeur and Dupuis (2009) and Roberts and Pregitzer (2007), who have variously argued that there is a relationship betweenperformance review as well as performance appraisal and employee productivity. A cross-sectional research design was employed to collect data from a sample of 113 respondents chosen from a population of 120.

The study established that performance review, feedback and action plan strongly account for improvement of employee productivity in organisations such as Pride Microfinance Limited. This conclusion was supported by the Adjusted R Square values of 0.932 (performance review), 0.938 (performance feedback) and 0.942 (action plan) on employee productivity. It is recommended that some modifications in the design and implementation of performance review, performance feedback and action plan of Pride Microfinance Limited is undertaken in order for the organisation to enjoy the full benefits of these tools.
