Tips for Employees on Navigating 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. Even if you choose not to complete a formal self-appraisal, this meeting is one of the best opportunities you have to freely discuss your performance and goals with your supervisor.
