'How to Conduct An Effective Performance Evaluation' to be held on August 22, 2018

Session Description

Supervisors and managers will become better acquainted with the process involved with writing an effective performance evaluation that constructively addresses the strengths and challenges of an employee's performance. Used properly, the performance evaluation will:

  1. Inform - It allows the supervisor or manager and employee to communicate openly about performance. This should happen throughout the year and not only at this time. Issues discussed now should not be unexpected to the employee. It also provides supervisors the opportunity to hear employees' views of the work situation.   

  2. Set Goals - The supervisor/manager and employee mutually establish goals for progress. Goals should be realistic, measurable, and obtainable within six months to one year.  

  3. Develop - The supervisor and employee identify actions that can be taken to enhance development and performance of the employee.  

  4. Evaluate - The supervisor and employee evaluate results based on previously established goals and performance standards, which provides a basis and documentation for transfer, promotion, reassignment, or disciplinary action.  

  5. Provide - Standards for decisions on merit advances.
