Performance Evaluations also known as Performance Appraisals is a process where job performance is measured, documented and evaluated. The evaluation of performance can be formal and/or informal. Early in the development of organizations things are very fluid and people are asked to step in and perform multiple roles. The performance evaluations during these early stages may be more informal, occurring over a series of conversations that are suitable for the changing environment. As the company grows there is a need to move toward formal performance evaluations that is part of a systematic approach used to help manage employee performance.
This week’s show focuses on the performance appraisals and how to move them from informal to formal. We will discuss key elements of a performance appraisal and highlight areas that will help align the employee’s performance with the overall business objectives. If it is true that “What gets measured gets done” then you want to make sure that you are measuring the “right” things. In addition to this we will have a strong focus on how to make the process as painless as possible. Too often Formal Performance Appraisals become something that is hated and feared, by both those being appraised, and those doing the appraising. It doesn't have to be like this. If we can establish your Formal Performance Appraisals form a people centric and engaged staff approach they can become a very beneficial and useful business tool for more than just just measuring metrics, and one one that is not dreaded but at least accepted and understood. Leading to all round business gains and taking away the fear.
