How to ace your performance review
Do these things before or during your performance appraisal to help it go more smoothly and to leave with your dignity and job firmly intact.
Performance reviews and employee evaluations are stressful for everyone involved. Managers don’t relish critiquing their employees, and staff members rarely enjoy the added scrutiny. Add into the equation that raises and bonuses can hinge on these reviews, and it’s not a surprise emotions can run high when review time rolls around. Preparation is the key to getting through a performance review as stress-free as possible.
Whether you’re expecting a thoroughly positive review or an absolutely dreadful one, there are things you can do before or during the meeting to help it go more smoothly and to leave with your dignity and job firmly intact.
