Are You Ready For Year-End Performance Reviews?

Preparing annual employee performance evaluations is a task often dreaded by managers and human resource professionals alike. And yet, documenting performance is critical for employee productivity, workplace morale, effective supervisor-subordinate communication and legal protection. Like all employee documentation, poorly-prepared evaluations can be more dangerous than no evaluations at all. Making sure this all-important process is handled smoothly and effectively can make or break the following year.

In this practical and informative seminar, employment law attorney Karen L. Gabler will discuss the detailed steps involved in preparing and presenting year-end performance reviews for employees. Topics covered will include the following:

  • Should we conduct annual evaluations? Why?
  • What kind of evaluations should we have?
  • Should we ask employees to do self-evaluations?
  • Should we do 360 evaluations?
  • What kind of format is best?
  • What exactly are we evaluating?
  • What categories should we include?
  • What should we say (or not say!) in evaluations?
  • Should we use grades or numerical scores?
  • How do we use evaluations to assess bonus eligibility?
  • How do we present the evaluation to the employee?
  • How can we make sure the evaluation remains effective even after it's over?
  • Why are evaluations so difficult, and how can we make them easier?

PLEASE NOTE: Attendance is limited to no more than three people from each company.
