Conducting Painless Performance Evaluation Meetings

Most managers and employees fear, avoid, and dread the performance evaluation meeting about as much as they do the dentist.  A study published by T&D Magazine reported that although almost two-thirds of employees surveyed felt their performance evaluation was accurate, less than a third said it helped them to improve performance. With little to show from the meeting and nothing gained except a case of heartburn, it is no wonder that employees and managers hate them.

The unqualified truth is that performance evaluations are one of the most powerful tools available to boost productivity, increase morale and get better business outcomes BUT only if it they are done correctly. With so much riding on effective and actionable employee performance management, we think it is time to reposition the way evaluation meetings are conducted. Evaluation meetings don’t have to be painful and unrewarding. In fact, they can be productive, positive, and painless.
