Abstract

Abstract

This study aims to identify academicians’ views related to performance evaluation, motivation and organizational justice. Study utilizes qualitative research methods. Working group consists of 21 academicians employed at the university. Some of the findings are as follows: performance evaluation and motivation are interrelated. This relationship should be explained by taking individual variations (rewards, personal, psychological characters of the academician) and organizational variations (performance evaluation expert, physical environment, groups in organization, organizational communication) into account. Members of organizations compare perceptions regarding performance evaluation results both with their own input and output and with those of others in organizations. Since judgments related to comparison affect motivation and performance, it is instrumental in feelings of justice in organizational applications. Study also reveals state universities in Turkey are in need of transformation in performance evaluation and structural change.
