Why are performance reviews so onerous?Â
One reason is that many companies have developed systems over time and with many different inputs.Â New managers bring their favorite songs from old regime society and add to the original.Â Someone reads a book about the skills or means to the vine are other ways to absorb information and their inclusion in the mix.Â Finally, each plan is groaning under the weight of the material.Â And as they try to sort them? Often, for all online or on the intranet and the system then disconnects from reality and people sentenced to achieve.Â It creates itself as it grows and flourishes.
A great shock to the biological method, a report has been the recent introduction of skills.Â Wow!Â More to measure and score more.Â It is not difficult to understand why people are so unpopular assessments.Â And when people wonder why they do not provide improved performance, it is time for someone from the outside.
I had two interesting dilemmas with two different customers last year.Â They had developed their assessment documents for managers to their staff invite you to a network of five guests and the first element was "honesty."Â I mean, you really want to go through every year, how honest someone?Â Do you want someone who receives only "3 or worse off honesty 2 '? Understand my other client is not really what a competent and had stayed with an evaluation system to askÂ managers score their employees for the specialty of the health and safety. "Rating categories (they must have solid evidence) was "a model" to "must do better."
An annual performance review or evaluation can be so much easier, less time and more beneficial to both the organization and participants.Â But more useful, we must return to the top, tear the existing literature and remind you why you do it.Â Answer the question - "What is the purpose of making a performance review?Â For me, the score is simply to promote and improve performance for the benefit of the individual and the organization.Â It includes attitudes towards the overall performance of the company's objectives and identification of all the measures necessary to support learning of the individual to achieve these objectives
The appraisal is all about communication
There is anÂ interviewÂ orÂ conversation.Â ThereÂ mustÂ beÂ a formal discussionÂ betweenÂ two adultsÂ in threeÂ separate parts:
1.Â First,Â writeÂ together,Â whatÂ happenedÂ duringÂ theÂ previous year.Â TheyÂ discuss andÂ give andÂ receiveÂ feedback onÂ success.Â IfÂ necessary,Â theÂ managerÂ ofÂ feedbackÂ onÂ howÂ thetasksÂ couldÂ beÂ improvedÂ offer.
EssentiallyÂ -Â whatÂ works?Â WhatÂ isÂ not?Â WhatÂ couldÂ help?Â Disabilities?
2.Â TheÂ secondÂ step isÂ forÂ the managerÂ of theÂ company presentationÂ andÂ businessÂ plan to share.Â WhatÂ areÂ theÂ goalsÂ at the headÂ of the organizationÂ isÂ whatÂ theÂ impactÂ onÂ yourteam?Â Finally,Â theÂ twoÂ adultsÂ agreeÂ theÂ way forwardÂ for theÂ nextÂ year.Â ThisÂ is normally basedÂ onÂ the objectives of theÂ agreementÂ theÂ companyÂ keyÂ objectives.Â ItÂ will also help toÂ identify,Â assessÂ achievementÂ ofÂ theseÂ goals.
3.Â ThenÂ it is easyÂ toÂ addÂ documentationÂ forÂ yourÂ hostÂ opinion.Â ItÂ mayÂ beÂ onlyÂ an A4 sheet,Â becauseÂ allÂ you needÂ isÂ aÂ summaryÂ ofÂ whatÂ heÂ learnedÂ fromÂ theÂ discussionÂ and a recordÂ ofÂ agreed targetsÂ andÂ trainingÂ forÂ theÂ coming yearÂ agreed.
