Better Decisions: Take the time to do proper performance evaluations with your staff

Open communication and feedback with employees will greatly enhance your chances of success


One of the most difficult tasks faced by a manager or supervisor faces is evaluating staff and providing feedback to their employees.

Most employees want feedback on their work or performance and this is an excellent opportunity for both employer and employee to reinforce the lines of communication.
