Establishing goals
  • Performance appraisals are a great time for managers and employees to review or establish individual-level goals that fit into the company’s broader objectives.
  • Setting goals is an effective way to make employees feel valued, challenged, and take pride in their work and their workplace.

Goals for performance

Performance appraisals are a great opportunity for employers and employees to collaboratively review or establish both individual and company-wide goals. During an appraisal, the employee should come to see how their tasks and performance fit into the broader goals of the company. Any individual goals that are set for the employee should be tailored to mesh with the company’s objectives. Communicating to employees how their job performance and goals fit into the bigger picture for the company instills in them feelings of mutual value and pride in their day-to-day work.

To help establish clear and realistic goals for employees, the appraiser may want to review each employee’s training, experience, skills, and qualifications, along with his or her job performance since the last appraisal. Ideally, this should be done prior to the formal appraisal. The appraiser may also want to consider this information in relation to an employee’s career opportunities within the company, or to help anticipate any obstacles that may exist in their future development.
