Why are employee self-evaluations important?

Employee self-evaluations can be done as a part of the performance review process or on an occasional basis. In both cases, there are a number of clear benefits in having the employees evaluate themselves:

  • The self-evaluation stimulates the employee to think about their own performance and career evolution.
  • The outcome of the self-assessment will prepare both the employee and the manager for the evaluation meeting.
  • Areas of improvement can be discussed in a more effective way when they are detected by the employee.
  • Self-evaluations demonstrate a collaborative company culture because the voice of the employee is taken into account.

Self-Evaluation Example Questions

As seen in the sample self evaluation above, you should consider including questions about:

  • Accomplishments
  • Working in a team with colleagues
  • Adherence to processes, e.g. “I turn in documents on time”
  • Quantitative self-evaluation on a number of job-specific skills, e.g. “I am constantly trying to innovate as much as I can”
  • Quantitative self-evaluation on a number of core-skills, e.g. “My attitude is the best” 
  • Strengths
  • Areas for self-improvement
  • Suggestions for improvements in the company/workplace
  • Suggestions about training needs
  • Career expectations

 

For the quantitative evaluation questions, you can use a numeric or star rating question type. Always include the possibility to enter additional free text (non-mandatory), allowing the employee to clarify the score that was given.

It is important that the evaluation can be done efficiently and that the results are automatically transferred to a central system for effective follow-up. Online self-evaluations are ideally suited for this.

While self-evaluation through paper forms, PDF or Word documents is possible, these methods have significant disadvantages. Following the assessment, the data will need to be transferred to a central system which can result in errors and delays.
