Tips for Employees on the Performance Appraisal Process

  • The self-appraisal process provides you with the opportunity to review and consider your accomplishments, challenges, and performance of the past year from your perspective.
  • Be positive and open. While we all have the tendency to be overly critical of ourselves, this self-appraisal is meant to bring out your positive qualities and consider areas for improvement.
  • In the same spirit, give constructive suggestions to your supervisor when it applies. When you cite an area that needs attention, offer suggestions for improvement.
  • Take sufficient time to prepare for your performance meeting with your supervisor. This meeting is one of the best opportunities you have to freely discuss your performance and goals with your supervisor.
