In the final episode of our four-part series with John Mackenzie, a business coach who helps small businesses thrive, we explore leading employee development using performance reviews.
John shares why you should share the performance evaluation criteria early, why you should consider NOT linking performance reviews to compensation, and how to calibrate your ratings for consistency – no matter who is executing the actual review conversations.
Further, John provides great detail about what to include on your performance evaluation, and Amy describes how the process works for her team to link accomplishments and increased responsibility to pay raises. He suggests the best timelines for completing the appraisal process throughout an employee’s tenure.
To wrap it up, John recommends what three questions to ask your employees so they have the opportunity to provide feedback about YOUR performance as an owner or manager.
