Abstract

Our study examines the use of the performance appraisal system at Hebron Public Hospital (Palestine) during the second intifada, started in 2000. The aim of the article is to shed light on the reasons behind the use of performance appraisal systems in organizations operating in zones of conflicts, an area relatively neglected by HR scholars. To create the theoretical fundament we draw on mainstream literature on performance appraisal, contextualizing it to the Middle-Eastern context. From the literature analysis, we identify five guiding logics for the implementation and use of performance appraisal systems (). We use a multi-method approach, qualitative and quantitative, to analyze the longitudinal performance evaluation data over the period 2000–2002 for about 250 individuals. These data are complemented with interviews and observations in the field.
