Employee Evaluation Form basics

Employee performance evaluations present an opportunity for an employer or manager to sit down with an employee and discuss job expectations, pressure points, pathways to promotions, communication issues, timelines and more. An Employee Evaluation Form helps you keep records of this process.

What is an Employee Evaluation Form?

An Employee Evaluation Form helps employers keep track of performance evaluations, and they can provide meaningful documentation for how employees can improve and grow in their careers. Evaluations typically cover various aspects of job performance such as quality of work, timeliness, creativity and communications skills. Evaluations are typically scheduled on a regular schedule, such as once per quarter or once per year. Employee evaluations present businesses with the opportunity to regularly check in with employees within the parameters of a formal feedback process.
