Background: Performance appraisal is a crucial component of organizational management, influencing employee motivation, productivity, and overall performance. With the increasing prevalence of remote work arrangements, understanding how organizations conduct performance appraisals in remote settings is essential for maintaining employee engagement and organizational success.

Objective: This case study aims to examine the performance appraisal system of Mutual Trust Bank Ltd. (MTB) in the context of remote work. The study seeks to explore the objectives, methods, and outcomes of MTB's performance appraisal practices, focusing on the challenges and strategies associated with remote performance evaluation.

Methods: Data for this study were gathered from publicly available sources, including the MTB website, annual reports, employee manuals, and relevant publications. Qualitative analysis techniques were applied to extract key insights into MTB's performance appraisal system, its implementation in remote work environments, and its impact on employee performance and engagement.

Results: The analysis revealed that MTB employs a comprehensive performance appraisal system, encompassing various components such as basic salary, bonuses, leave policies, and other benefits. The organization provides incentives and rewards to motivate employees, including biannual bonuses, sick leave, and maternity/paternity leave. However, challenges related to remote performance evaluation were identified, including communication barriers, equitable assessment criteria, and the need for reliable feedback mechanisms.

Conclusion: Despite the challenges posed by remote work, MTB demonstrates a commitment to maintaining an effective performance appraisal system to support employee engagement and productivity. The findings highlight the importance of adapting performance appraisal practices to remote work environments while ensuring transparency, fairness, and accountability. Recommendations are provided for enhancing remote performance appraisal processes to improve organizational effectiveness and employee satisfaction at MTB.
