Why are people subjective when rating peformance?

Supervisory job performance ratings play a crucial role in most organizations' personnel decisions. However, supervisory job performance ratings are not necessarily an accurate representation of actual job performance because they are prone to cognitive biases. What are these cognitive biases? Why do they have an impact on job performance ratings? And how can we prevent these biases from happening? My research is aimed at answering these questions.
