The essential purpose of an evaluation is to assess the employee’s overall effectiveness in regards to the organizations goals and objectives for the month, quarter, and/or year. Along the same lines, it is designed to assure the company they have right people working for them. As a result, an organization is able to control their company by measuring its success and failures based on the results.

Helpful

Although the performance review is used mainly by superiors, the person being reviewed benefits from the review as well. Depending on how the review is done, the results may cause the employee to feel feelings of accomplishment, personal growth, and self-worth. Similarly, reviews with unexpected results reflect poorly on the salesperson self-worth. It is important for each individual to take responsibility for his or her transgressions or failure to meet the organization’s goals and objectives. A great review can lead to promotions, bonuses, you name it! You take control of your own career when you transcend your supervisor’s expectations.

Scary

Those who oppose performance reviews argue that they are flawed. They may believe that their review has some biases. Issues with co-workers or team, for example, may be a reason to fear what they have to say in regards to your work ethic although you feel you have done the best you can. Another reason to fear evaluations is related to the fear of being fired. Donald Trump does it for entertainment, but when your boss does it.. it’s strictly business.

It is what it is…

Every member of the organization should be reviewed in order to ensure success, improve and continue to innovate. During a tough economy evaluations become more significant to managers because as Jim Collins would say you want to have the “right people on the bus, and the wrong people off the bus.”

Pro-Tem Solutions recently posted links to positive news on our Facebook page and LinkedIn group. There are reports that say such amount of people are unemployed, and then reports saying that there are jobs out there. Below is a chart from the Department of Labor that shows how fast we’ve recovered compared to other down times. It sends people mixed signals about the actual state of the economy.

Every day we work hard to find jobs in Accounting, Finance, and IT as well as placing the right candidate with the right client. So what should you do this labor day whether you have a job or you’re unemployed?

On Facebook, you can change your settings so that specific people (maybe your boss or co-workers) don’t see those unruly status updates.

You can make it specific to the people you don’t want looking at your profile via the “Customize settings” option. Also, when you post pictures up of your wonderful Labor Day weekend you can make the albums visible to specific people and not visible to others. Your online posts may be affecting how potential employers view you.

  • Look for job postings on our website www.Pro-TemSolutions.com You’ll see that we have plenty of jobs waiting for the right person to apply.
  • Stay positive!
