Is it acceptable to reference (or possibly provide copies of) performance appraisals during an interview (or as part of a resume), if one has gotten especially sterling reviews during performance appraisal (which mention distinct achievements from the perspective of management)?

As far as providing copies goes: My employer declares anything personnel-related company confidential, requiring a manager's approval to release outside the company. Check your company's policies.


Go ahead and mention it. As long as there wan't some sort of contractual nondisclosure agreement, it seems not only permissible, but a fabulous idea.

Of course a potential new employer wants to know if you've been doing really well at your previous job - it's a fabulous reason to employ you themselves!!
