Performance Review Rating
Managers dread rating their employees and employees dread being rated. If you have to have a rating system we recommend a dual process to assess both behaviors and job competence (responsibilities, skills and goals; the "what" that is accomplished in the job).
Sample Employee Performance Review Form
Most forms are over engineered and require the manager to record extraneous and redundant informaiton. See our suggestion for keeping the form to one or two pages and including the most essential information.
