"Employee reviews occur once per year - great leaders make them count!”

The performance appraisal is a critically important task for every employer. Maintaining solid communication and a healthy relationship with employees is essential for every leader and the organization as a whole.

"Nothing discussed during an annual performance review should ever come as a surprise to the employee - unless you are informing them about a promotion!"

Performance appraisals help to clarify standards, expectations and responsibilities - plus, they enable management to identify training needs and if necessary establish an employee action plan. Most importantly, performance appraisals help foster positive relationships between management and front-line staff.

The performance appraisal process provides a great opportunity to ensure employee morale and for management to positively influence attitude and behavior.

Because performance appraisals are such a significant part of the management process, and not to be taken lightly, we have created this six-part series to lead you through the entire process.

By using this guide, as well as our free performance appraisal tool, you will be better prepared for your next round of annual performance reviews.

"The employee performance review is whene you get together with your team leader and agree what an outstanding member of the team you are, how much your contribution has been valued, what massive potential you have... and in recognition of all this, agree to doing more for less."

- Theodore Roosevelt
