Mastering the Performance Evaluation Process – You can’t manage what you don’t measure

For many supervisors and managers, the thought of annual performance evaluations fills them with dread. Images of being barricaded in the office for a week or more with a sign on the door saying “Do Not Disturb” is all too familiar for some. Yet others see it as a time-wasting form-filling activity, often accompanied by crushed egos, hurt feelings, resentment, and sometimes even anger. However the reality is that it doesn’t have to be this way! When carried out correctly, performance evaluations can be a great way to:

  • Strengthen bonds and build trust with employees
  • Re-focus them and motivate them to succeed, and …
  • Create positive effects on departmental or organizational results.
