What Should We Have Accomplished By The End of The Annual Performance Review Meeting?
The clearer you are about what needs to be accomplished during an annual performance review meeting, the easier the performance appraisal meeting will be. Here's a list of six outcomes that should be achieved during the performance evaluation, taken from The Manager's Guide To Performance Reviews (McGraw-Hill), by Robert Bacal.
- Confirmed the major job responsibilities of the employee.
- Provided the employee with your observations and suggestions regarding his or her performance.
- Received comments and suggestions from the employee as to how the two of you can work together to improve performance.
- Identified barriers in the system that need to be overcome and agreed on how they will be done.
- Completed any forms or other paperwork required of you by your company.
- Documented any decisions and/or discussions and recommentations about pay, promotion, or disciplinary action.
