Performance Assessments – Why Employers Need Them and Employees Want Them

Performance assessments better businesses at all levels and are invaluable tools in effective business management. They can help management direct staff more effectively, increase individual employee and team efficiency, foster healthy career development of staff, and even support a more effective hiring and training process. Staff reviews define the role of the employee in the organization and identify what skills the individual is expected to demonstrate. Evaluations are designed to measure personnel achievement and include an assessment of quantity and quality of work, adherence to deadlines, attendance, including any absenteeism or tardiness, and compliance with organization policy. Additionally, evaluations set goals for further development.
