Déterminants perçus de l’adoption et forme d’une pratique managériale controversée : le cas des systèmes formels d’évaluation des performances individuelles dans les entreprises du secteur public au Cameroun

Abstract : Performance appraisal is a managerial practice that has been widely diffused in recent years and which tends to become widespread in public sector in Cameroon. Paradoxically, it is also one of the most contested HRM practices. The aim of this study is to understand why, despite the criticisms, public enterprises in Cameroon have adopted a formal system of individual performances evaluation and the forms that the practices of evaluation within the companies use. To this end, we carried out a qualitative study on the case studies and a quantitative study through a questionnaire administered to 200 employees in 10 companies of public sector in Cameroon. The results of the study show that a formal system of individual performances evaluation has been adopted because companies are motivated by a real concern for performance, in particular the concern to improve the quality of products or services, HRM and productivity of employees. Nevertheless, beyond this logic of performance, there is also a quest for legitimacy resulting in compliance with the pressures exerted by the government, the professionalization of managers and the effect of fashion. This quest for legitimacy has led public enterprises to adopt a classic and convergent evaluation model, derived from the private sector and North American culture. But in practice, this classic evaluation model is transformed, companies adopt different coping strategies that contribute to a variation of practices in the public sector
