Employee Appraisals

What is an Employee Performance Appraisal?

It’s the process of letting your employees know what it is that they are and are not doing well. If you are not giving any kind of performance appraisal at least once a quarter, then you are not you continue ignoring your company, as well as the employee. If an employee doesn’t know what they are doing wrong or that they could still use some improvement in an area, how will they understand their actions? If they are not working to increase their job performance, isn’t that damaging to your business? Your employees do not read minds. You have to communicate openly and honestly.

What Challenges Might I face with Employee Appraisals?

No matter how well defined the dimensions for appraising employee performance on quantitative goals are, judgments on performance are usually subjective and impressionistic.

Because employee appraisals provide inadequate information about the subtleties of performance, managers using them to compare employees for the purposes of determining salary increases often make arbitrary judgments.

What are the Top Reasons for Needing Employee Appraisals?

  • Establish clear performance expectations that are aligned with the desired business results.
  • Hold employees accountable for clearly defined key performance indicators, objectives, and behaviors.
  • Evaluate performance over a period of time looking for patterns of needed improvement.
  • Provides meaningful feedback celebrating successes and helping improve where needed.
  • Identify strengths and weaknesses.

  • Increased employee commitment to the work.
  • Greater creativity and innovation and higher employee morale and satisfaction with the work.

Client Review

McKenzie Mitchell

“We have worked with HR Service for a couple of years now and I have had nothing but positive experiences with them. They make themselves available to come on-site and perform training for our employees and upper management, we receive monthly calls checking in to see how things are going and if something comes up before that call, I know I can call or e-mail our HR Business Coach and will get a response within hours. Everyone is extremely knowledgeable about current policies and laws that keep our company and our employees safe and compliant. HR Service offers a variety of options, as far as creating a plan for how much assistance the business needs so that you aren’t paying for something you don’t need, but if you are in the middle of a big project and require more help at that time, it is available as well. For a young, startup company that needed help but didn’t require bringing on an executive-level Human Resources specialist, this was far and away from the best option. I would recommend HR Services to anyone and everyone.”
