Abstract: Since globalization, there is constant pressure for the management to reform their human resource management practices. This is to ensure continued existence of the se organizations and also human capital development. The changing roles of management placesa vital role on performance management through promoting work culture, work environment, degree of fairness and transparency in motivating employee’s to achieve greater performance standards. Performance appraisal, although in tricate and debatable tool (Roberts, 2003) being a part of performance management plays an important part in ensuring the organization’s employees perform according to company’s expectations. However, recent research has placed much emphasis measurement issue rather than improvement on performance itself(DeNisi, &Pritchard, 2006). The purpose of this research paper is to devise a structural equation modeling (SEM) in reference to performance appraisal, applying three central determinants which is work culture, environment and degree of fairness in order to measure employee’s job commitment and influence on performance. Through this research we are able to establish a conceptual framework for future research that focuses on employees’ performance improvement.
