An employee performance review, also known as a performance appraisal or evaluation, is a systematic process conducted by employers to assess and provide feedback on an employee's job performance, achievements, strengths, and areas for improvement. It involves a formal evaluation of an employee's performance against predetermined goals, job responsibilities, and performance expectations.
During an employee performance review, a manager or supervisor meets with the employee to discuss their performance over a specific period, such as a year. The review may involve evaluating key performance indicators, reviewing completed projects, and assessing the employee's skills, competencies, and overall contribution to the organization. The manager provides constructive feedback, identifies areas of improvement, and may set goals or development plans for the employee's future growth.
