Top Three Tips

  • Get into detail! Stop being vague and give up every single detail you like or don’t like about your employee. Not doing this can lead to misinterpretations and the whole review will miss its purpose entirely.
  • Follow up. This may very well be the most important advice to remember. While it may seem obvious, many managers get their employee performance reviews and just let them wither away in a drawer. You may have made great reports and gotton great actionable feedback, but if you don’t act on those things it will all be a waste of time and resources.
  • Be honest. This one may not seem that much of a problem at first, but in reality it is one of the top mistakes employers and managers make when reviewing an employee, they inflate the feedback they receive to avoid confrontation. But at the same time they are also avoiding giving that employee a chance to improve and making it harder for themselves to fire them if they should.

Employee Review Format

As can be seen in the above sample, the employee review should at least include the following information:

  • Employee name and department
  • Reviewer name and department
  • Date
  • Comment option for all questions: every detail must be recorded

It is important that the review feedback can be collected efficiently and it is automatically transferred to a central database where it can be analyzed by management: Mobile devices such as a tablet or smartphone are ideally suited for this task. Employee reviews through paper forms, pdf or word documents is also possible but has the disadvantage that the data still needs to be manually collected, read and evaluated which is error-prone and not time consuming.
