Conducting the employee appraisal meeting
- Schedule the meeting time a few days in advance. This lets your employee prepare what he/she wants to discuss. Be sure to reserve sufficient time for discussion.
- Choose a meeting place that is comfortable and private. Arrange your schedule so you will not be interrupted.
- Avoid discussing motivation or personal issues. Concentrate on the employee's behavior and the consequences of that behavior to the individual and the organization. This is a good time to reinforce the requirements of the job.
- Be sure to give the employee an opportunity to discuss his/her feelings and reactions to your feedback.
