Evaluating the Evaluator: A Case Study Illustrating Three Critical Mistakes No Evaluator Should Make
Lanigan, Mary L.
Performance Improvement, v49 n10 p39-45 Nov-Dec 2010
Most employees do not like to be evaluated because they fear the process and people involved. Although optimal performance evaluators can minimize people's anxieties about being assessed, actual performance evaluators can perpetuate employees' fears and, worse, lower their job performances and morale. A case study illustrates the actions of an actual performance evaluator and highlights the process he carries out and the report he writes. A debrief follows to show how to correct the mistakes he makes. (Contains 1 exhibit.)
