Performance Evaluations

Performance Evaluations

Performance valuations are a critical tool in the relationship between you and your employee(s). A thorough and honest evaluation of your employee’s performance is imperative. All exempt and non-exempt performance evaluations should be completed and returned to Human Resources by Friday, May 18, 2018.

The employee self-assessment and planning worksheet is a tool to help prepare for the employee’s appraisal. The worksheet should be returned to you prior to the review so that the employee’s comments can be incorporated into the review process.

There are six factors to consider in evaluating an employee’s performance. In evaluating these factors, expectations and results should be critically evaluated using specific examples instead of broad generalizations. When an employee’s evaluation exceeds expectations or is below expectations, cite examples.

The sequence of events in this process should be as follows:

  •          Indicate the return date of the self-assessment and planning worksheet. Return date should be prior to the evaluation date.
  •          Meet with each employee to review the evaluation and have conversation with the employee.
  •          This is also a good time to review the job description with the employee, make any necessary changes and return an updated job description to human resources.
  •          As supervisor, complete and sign the performance evaluation form.
  •          The completed form is reviewed with the employee. The employee signs the form and writes comments, if desired.
  •          As supervisor, forward the signed performance evaluation form to your supervisor for review and signature.
  •          Completed evaluations are returned to human resources.
