Week 6 Paper Topic:Why Do Some Managers Hate the Performance Evaluation?

Some managers would rather get a root canal than go through the performance evaluation process with their direct reports. Why? What does research tell you?

As you respond to the two questions listed above, please address the following:

  • What traits does an effective manager display in the workplace?
  • Is there a profile for a manager who may struggle with the evaluation process?
  • What are the key elements of a successful employee evaluation process? How should a manager prepare for the event?
  • Develop an evaluation form for your direct reports and show how the evaluation criterion correlates to the organization’s objectives. You need only discuss the evaluation form, you do not need to add a graphic unless you want to. You are to discuss what makes a quality evaluation form/process.
