In the previous segment “Appraisal Cycle FY 2021-22: What Are the Employees Expecting?”, we looked into the appraisal expectations of the working professionals based on the Naukri’s Poll survey.

While in the previous poll, employees such as yourself gave us your expectations from the appraisal cycle of FY 2021-22, we conducted one more poll to find out whether the final results met your expectations.

Now, the results are finally out! Let’s find out how much of the employee’s expectations have been surpassed...

To help understand the results better, we are dividing the data into the following sections;

  1. Appraisal results based on work experience
  2. Appraisal results based on current CTC
  3. Appraisal results based on metros
  4. Appraisal results based on industries

Now, before we move on to look into the actual outcome of the appraisals, let’s keep in mind that there are varied factors that go into finalizing the increment percentage, like performance, the company’s performance, cost of living in a city, etc.

Appraisal results based on Work experience

The poll results showed that almost 15% of the employees with 1-2 years of experience received less than a 10% increment, while 28% and 23% of the employees in the same experience range received 10-20% and 20-30% appraisals respectively. Whereas a whopping 33% received an increment of more than 30%.

On the other hand, the poll results showed that employees with higher work experience mostly received an increment ranging between less than 10% ranging up to 30% but not many received more than 30% for an annual appraisal.

For example, 35% of the employees with 2-5 years of experience received more than 30% for increment but only 19% of the people with >10 years received the same increment range.

The below attached graph can provide a better insight into the increment range that employees with different work experience received in the financial year 2021-22.


Appraisal results based on current CTC

Going by the employees’ expectations from the Annual appraisal of FY21-22, the percentage of people expecting less than 10% increment ranged from 2-6%, while almost 50% of the people were expecting an appraisal of more than 30%.

However, the results showed a different picture altogether. Between15-27% of the people with a salary ranging from 2LPA to more than 15LPA received less than 10% annual appraisal in the financial year 2021-2022.

Between 28-34% of the employees in the same salary range received an increment between 10-20%.
