The present study aimed to assess the relationship between performance appraisal satisfaction and employee outcomes in employees of garment industries. It was hypothesized that performance appraisal satisfaction has a significant positive relationship with work performance and affective organizational commitment; while a significantly negative relationship with turnover intentions. Co relational cross sectional research design and convenient sampling was used in the study. The sample consisted of employees (N = 150) including (n = 75 males, n = 75 females) with age range (25 to 60) years (M = 35.56, SD = 7.95). Performance Appraisal Satisfaction Questionnaire (Meyer & Smith, 2000), Affective Organizational Commitment Questionnaire (Meyer, Allen & Smith, 1993), Work Performance Questionnaire (Kuvaas, 2006) and Turnover Intentions Questionnaire (Meyer & Smith, 2000) were used to measure study variables. Results indicated that performance appraisal satisfaction had a significantly positive relationship with work performance and affective organizational commitment while a significantly negative relationship with turnover intentions. The present study laid grounds that conducting research on these kinds of variables is beneficial for organizations and have important repercussions on the organizations to improve their system of evaluating employees and reduce turnover intentions.
