Setting performance standards, observing and providing feedback, and conducting appraisals enables you to achieve the best results through managing employee performance.
To begin the process, you and the employee will collaborate on the development of performance standards. You will develop a performance plan that directs the employee's efforts toward achieving specific results, to support organizational growth as well as the employee's professional growth. Discuss goals and objectives throughout the year, providing a framework to ensure employees achieve results through coaching and mutual feedback. At the end of the rating period, you will appraise the employee's performance against existing standards, and establish new goals together for the next rating period.
As the immediate supervisor, you play an important role; your closest interaction with the employee occurs at this level.
