||Management pressure has been increasing for most companies due to fierce competition from the same industry and rapid changes and complexities in the larger context. To survive the competition and ensure sustainable management, the introduction of organization yearly performance management system is necessary. It allows a company to clarify its overall yearly goals and to extend them to individual employees according to departmental functions, linking the goals of the company, its departments, and its individual employees together. The present study takes a semiconductor packaging assembly company as case study and analyzes the factors influencing its yearly performance management system. |
The study first conducts a literature review, delineating the theoretical bases and results of related literature, in order to establish the theoretical model for this research. It then provides the research hypothesis based on the case company, which will be tested by analyzing the data collected from questionnaires using SPSS.
Questionnaires are designed according to the four hypothesized indices of the case company: the supervisors’ recognition of the function of yearly performance management, departmental yearly goals not linked with the company’s yearly goals, routine management functions not synchronized with performance goals, and information system. SPSS testing shows that the Cronbach’s α is all higher than 0.7, indicating a high reliability of scale, in other words, high conformity. The research results demonstrate that:
1. Mean and standard deviation analysis shows that different levels of supervisors in the case company have conformed recognition regarding the influence of the four indices on the organization’s yearly performance.
2. Correlation analysis of the four hypothesized indices shows that they are highly correlated.
This study evaluates the turnover and gross profit of the past three years from the case company based on the four indices that influence its yearly performance management system and finds that there is much room for improvement. Therefore, the four indices still have considerable influence with regard to a company’s administration of performance management.
