Performance evaluations are critical. Most owners and managers don’t do performance evaluations because they simply don’t know how, they don’t understand their importance, or both.

These one-on-one evaluations, if done correctly, create an understanding of what is expected from the owners or management. They get everyone on “the same page” and can create a positive company culture.

Watch as the Harvesters review the “how-to’s” of doing performance evaluations from an expert in the field. It’s easier than most think! This was the subject of the Harvest Academy Teleconference on Monday. If you want a more in depth discussion, it was recorded and can be found in the Academy, along with performance evaluation forms.

Here in the Northeast (as Ed could attest to) it would be best to have bi-yearly performance evaluations. The first should be in late February/early March before the season opens. The second should be in August as business in these parts usually enters a calm period. This way the August session will be the most enlightening for all parties as a review of the past 5-6 months will be available and fresh in memory.

Regarding the question of goals for employees (such as areas to improve, courses to take, certifications to obtain) the employer should sound out the employees interests and have course schedules, reading materials etc ready and waiting. For employees that show a receptive attitude and have a consist work history the employer should also offer to pay for any expenses involved. If you believe in your people they will believe in themselves.
