The Meanings of Performance Evaluations
Darryn Jarrett, Project Manager, United States, Member
The employee evaluations that I have had for the past 15+ years are for the most part reiterations of previous evaluations with slight improvements - even though I dramatically grew as a person, an employee, an engineer, a masters student and graduate, and of course a devoted team member!
So what does the evaluation really mean to the managers doing them? In my opinion they are used to evaluate what would be required to replace me if the need arose. My evaluations have been generated mostly by my goals which have been given to me each year by my boss and then I get the chance to work to achieve them.
Do you agree and think this a fair generalization for employee appraisals and evaluations. I do, even though I have had great reviews and handsome benefit increases over the years. Curious to your thoughts of this topic?...Sign up
