The article presents tips for developing effective employee performance appraisals. A performance appraisal can be a powerful tool for any entrepreneur who wants to get the most out of every encounter with their employees. The basic tool and source of information for the interaction is an employee's job description. Therefore, before proceeding with the performance appraisal interview, it is important to develop a job description that accurately reflects an employee's responsibilities. A regularly scheduled feedback session, whether done quarterly or annually, gives employees a planned and anticipated opportunity to address key issues with their respective employers.
