Employee performance evaluations are an essential factor in the development of employees and the growth of the company, yet most managers and employees dread them.
Why? Because they often have the wrong focus – a focus of telling the employee what they have to do to improve or why they are getting less than stellar ratings for the year.
It is time to eliminate the dread of performance reviews and turn them into a robust conversation about personal professional growth and aligning the individual with goals that move the both individual and the company forward.
Components of healthy performance reviews are ensuring goals are focused and achievable, removing blocks the employee may face, asking appropriate questions and giving feedback, both negative and positive.
When managers and supervisors learn to set a positive environment for honest discussions, the appraisal process becomes a constructive discussion that builds relationships and increases performance. It can be duplicated throughout the year with positive results.
