    This study explores the role of managerial values in shaping performance appraisal (PA) practices. Managerial values been found to serve as frameworks that guide and determine action, goals, choices, decisions, attitudes, as well as persuading and influencing others; principles that are at the heart of an effective PA. Yet, despite extensive literature on PA, managerial values and PA have not generally been regarded as integrally connected. This study contributes to PA literature by utilising a values-based maturity model to determine the depth of integration of values that encourage effective PA practices. When enacted core values and PA are linked, they are argued to lead to sustained superior financial performance. Theoretical and managerial implications and future directions for research are discussed.
