What makes an effective evaluation form?
The best employee evaluations forms contribute directly to the success of your performance management process. A poorly designed performance appraisal form can frustrate and disengage managers and employees from the process — which defeats the whole purpose.
A well-designed performance appraisal form does exactly the opposite; it simplifies the process for managers and employees, and provides HR and executives with the information they need to make strategic talent decisions.
What makes a performance evaluation form great?
To be effective, evaluation forms for employees must:
- Include clear information and instructions
- Guide managers and employees on what they need to provide
- Flow logically from past performance to development needs, goals and aspirations
- Illustrate the various levels of competency demonstration
