influence of performance appraisal process on employee performance at Cocoa
Marketing Company (Ghana). There has been argument that the appraisal process
of Cocoa Marketing Company (Ghana) has an influence on the performance of

employees of Cocoa Marketing Company of Ghana. Findings
from this research work are targeted at helping the management of Cocoa
Marketing Company (Ghana) as well as other organisations to assess the

Accra branch of Cocoa Marketing Company (Ghana) will be involve in this study.
Again, only the junior staffs in the company will be use in this study.
Nevertheless, it is expected that since staff in the Cocoa Marketing Company
(Ghana) face almost the same problems concerning performance appraisal process
throughout the country; the findings from this location can be used for
generalisation.
