Evaluation Based On Feedback


    Evaluation based on feedback. In many organizations, the supervisor or manager will evaluate the data, typically in private, and then publish the actions determined from his or her evaluation. On the surface, this appears to be the most expedient method, but it actually slows down implementation when people are asked to take action without knowing the decision process behind the request. A more sustainable system is one in which the information is fed back to the people who are being asked to act and then an evaluation is done as collaboratively as possible.

    An employee evaluation is the assessment and review of a worker’s job performance. Most companies have an employee evaluation system wherein employees are evaluated about once a year.

    Regular employee evaluation helps remind workers what their managers expect in the workplace. They also provide employers with helpful information to use when making employment decisions, such as promotions, pay raises, and layoffs.

    Many employees want to know how they are performing in their jobs.  It is the manager’s responsibility to give feedback to the employees. Giving feedback to employees helps improve their performance, decreases turnover, motivates self-improvement, builds trust, and creates a paper trail useful in litigation.  

     Managers will benefit from making a strong commitment to actually do reviews, they can not just talk or think about doing them. They have to take action and actually do them.  The commitment should include making the reviews timely in the face of great time pressure to postpone, being honest, and thinking about helping employees. The commitment should point out what is right with the best people and not only focus on what is wrong with the worst people.  

    Surprisingly, employees and employers like performance reviews, especially when it is beneficial for everyone. Employees will respond positively to well-planned and well-conducted reviews. 

    It is important to perform evaluation based on feedback.
