Delivering Successful Employee Evaluations

In order to successfully deliver an EPE, raters should do the following:

  • Acquire knowledge of employee job and performance
  • Develop/discuss expectations
  • Provide feedback/recognition
  • Identify training needs
  • Coordinate with reviewing officer
  • Prepare and discuss rating

An important part of the EPE is the employee's training and development plan. In order to develop a successful training plan, the following steps are recommended:

  • Integrate it with the Employee Performance Evaluation
  • Be positive
  • Encourage personal growth
  • Identify new opportunities
  • Recognize fear of change
  • Provide training appropriate to learning
  • Permit incremental learning

Once completed by the supervisor/manager, the EPE is reviewed by the reviewing officer. The role of the reviewing officer is as follows:

  • Discuss standards/performance with the supervisor before and during rating cycle
  • Hold supervisor accountable for successfully performing management duties
  • Ensure the consistent application of standards
  • Discuss/investigate employee appeals
