Companies rely on employee reviews to inform workers know about their efforts to meet and exceed performance standards and identify opportunities for growth. Yet many organizations use out-of-date reporting forms or inadequate measures to communicate this critical information.

The Performance Appraisal Source Book puts the best practical examples of good performance-appraisal forms at your fingertips. This book has:

  • More than 40 sample forms for all types of performance reviews, from introductory through 360-degree, to upward evaluations.
  • Templates, provided in electronic format on the included CD-ROM, that can be adapted to fit your specifications.
  • A review of the basics of performance review systems and plans: plan design, legal considerations, implementation, presenting reviews and follow-up.
  • Material to help you design new plans: checklists to examine the organization, the workforce, and the current system; and sample questionnaires for employees and supervisors.
