As we get closer to the end of the year, it's almost time for annual reviews. We've put together our tips to help managers get the most out of their in-person meetings. First off, have your employees start preparing now. Ask them to compile results from throughout the year as well as conduct a self-assessment that addresses each employees strengths, weaknesses, and goals. Once the self-assessment is complete, as a manager you should compile as much relevant data and information as you can on each employee. This includes client reviews of the employee, as well as your own personal observations from throughout the year. Before you actually conduct the review, make sure you have a clear picture of how you want the in-person meeting to be structured. Base it off of either your employees' goals, or the major projects that they are working on. Have your talking points prepared, and make sure you identify the employees who are possible candidates for a promotion ahead of time.
