Eight Steps for More Effective Performance Appraisals

Step 1 When an employee is hired or assigned to your office, provide a written description of the behaviors and qualities required for the job.

Step 2 Set specific goals with the employee and put your agreement in writing.

Step 3 Make sure the goals are fair and reasonable so they allow you to evaluate how well the employee is doing.

Step 4 Explain that the performance review process is designed to evaluate how well goals are met and the means by which the employee achieved them.

Step 5 Obtain agreement with the employee about which behaviors and performance criteria will be achieved.

Step 6 Set a date for the first review. Make sure you schedule the first review within any probationary period required by your office.

Step 7 Observe the employee during the review period and document incidents of behavior that affect the employee’s performance or illustrate behavior patterns.

Step 8 Schedule the actual appraisal far enough in advance to allow the employee to prepare.
