HR Fact Friday: Performance Reviews 101 – Just Do It!

Filed under: Performance Pro6:00 am

There are at least three reasons performance evaluations are so important.

  1. They are an employee’s report card – how well is he/she doing?
  2. They present an opportunity to praise a good employee and manage a not-so-good one.
  3. Finally, if done right, they can be helpful evidence for an employer in legal disputes with employees or former employees.

The problem we are seeing trend most recently regarding performance reviews . . .

  • Are you evaluating your top managers (e.g. CEO, CFO, CHRO) and your highest compensated employees?

Here are some tips for doing good performance reviews:

  1. Evaluate ALL your employees (including top management)
  2. Be honest and take time to do a good job
  3. Evaluate for the whole period (e.g. one year) – don’t short-time someone
  4. Evaluate only job-related matters
  5. Don’t “soft pedal” or “slam” due to personal feelings of like or dislike
  6. Don’t evaluate when angry.
