Miss Lewis: I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it's that time of year again. Have you got your perfomp3ance evaluations finished yet?
Mr. Lee: Oh no! Evaluations! You can tell that's not my favorite job; I haven't even started yet. When is the deadline for turning in thecompleted fomp3s?
Miss Lewis: Well, you do still have three weeks. But remember the employee must sign them, too. Filling them in is nothing - it's meetingwith the employees that takes so much time.
Mr. Lee: I never know how to rate the employees' work. Of course attendance and productivity are easy, I just look at the sales figures.
Miss Lewis: So it's the subjective criteria like team buliding and colleague support that you find hard?
Mr. Lee: Exactly! Attitude... how do you rate attitude?
Miss Lewis: I suggest letting each employee fill out his or her own evaluation for those items. Then, based on their self - assessment, you can add your comments. It's a great starting point for discussion of their perceptions versus others perceptions of their perfomp3ance.
Mr. Lee: Great idea. And after all, that's the whole point of an evaluation. I almost can't wait to give it a try.
