What is an Employee Evaluation Form?
An Employee Evaluation form is a data sheet that is to be filled out together with the employee and their supervisor. The form has space for rating different requirements and traits, as well as space to write comments.
What is it used for?
Using this form is an official way to assess the performance of the employee from an employer and employee perspective.
How often should I evaluate an employee with this form?
This form can be used on a routine basis, sometimes every six or twelve months, or used as an official performance review whenever deemed necessary.
Why is it important for me as an employer?
Using an employee evaluation form is a good idea to establish a paper trail to assist in making decisions related to HR. Having a paper trail to record the performance and overall attitude of the employee is very important. It can protect you as an employer if you are ever accused of unjustly firing or reprimanding an employee.
Should I use it as a disciplinary tool?
An employee evaluation form is different from an employee write-up form. An employee write-up form is used to document negative performance or incidents related to a certain employee.
