Looking Forward: Your Performance Appraisal
- Send to friend
An employee who is prepared for a performance appraisal is more likely to contribute to an effective meeting and positive outcome. Although mangers are often educated on how to carry out an appraisal, other employees are usually overlooked. However, all employees play an important role in the performance appraisal.
How well the feedback and expectations are received is determined as much by the employees as it is by the manager. When an employee feels empowered and prepared, he or she is more likely to approach the meeting without fear and leave feeling motivated and enthused. Ensuring both the supervisor and the employee are feeling confident and at ease is the best way to achieve a productive and successful meeting.
