Paperwork or Opportunity?
Most employees dread them and managers hate the paperwork. But employee evaluations are a good time to sit down face-to-face with the people you work with and figure out what is and isn’t working.
The quality of the process can be massively influenced by hr and management. If your process is crap and boring then your staff won’t like it. Simple. So make it fun, interesting and an opportunity for employees to shine.
What’s the point?
Ideally you want to find out from your employees, what they’ve been doing and what they want to do. What they think their criteria for success are, areas that they could perform well in and areas that they might need support.
We’ve hunted around the internet for you to find the best employee evaluation templates that are out there.
