This is an excellent performance evaluation tool. Conducting performance evaluations is an important responsibility of every supervisor. Employees deserve to know where they stand in the eyes of your organizations' leadership. If done intelligently, this process can foster honest communication between employees and supervisors and help create a stronger team by encouraging professional growth.
