AdminEmployee Performance Reviews, Performance Management

Interested in why organizations do employee performance evaluation?

When done correctly, with the appropriate mindset and the right software, performance management tools like the suite we offer at Sprigg, can offer big advantages to both the manager and the employee.

The question on the table now is why organizations would want to ask employees to participate in either employee performance evaluation or a performance management system. Good reasons exist for advocating the basic concept of the performance evaluation.

Where The Employee Performance Evaluation Fits

In some form, most organizations have an overall plan for business success. The employee performance evaluation process, including goal setting, performance measurement, regular feedback, employee recognition, and documentation of employee progress, ensures this success. The process — done with care and understanding — helps employees see how their jobs and expected contributions fit within the bigger picture of their organization.

The more effective evaluation processes accomplish these goals and have additional benefits. Documented performance evaluations are communication tools that ensure the supervisor and her reporting staff members are clear about the requirements of each employee’s job. The evaluation also communicates the desired outcomes or outputs needed from each employee’s job and defines how they will be measured.
