A simple method we would like to suggest is to evaluate at the end of every work cycle. This can be at the completion of every project or a time-frame which concludes with the employee group receiving a paycheck. Pretty much every paycheck should be associated with an evaluation.
Setting up accurate result areas are important to ensure employees are able to finish evaluations quickly without confusion.
We recommend setting up evaluations on core result areas more frequently than tertiary result areas that pertain to general behavior and not on job performance.
A perfect evaluation strategy is built up of several recurring evaluations some more frequent than others. HR professionals often set up per project, quarterly evaluations or yearly evaluations that collectively build up performance intelligence.
Research has proven that evaluations consisting of easily understood single choice questions have a better chance of being fulfilled the same day. AssessTEAM enables push notifications to smart devices for pending evaluations and our mobile apps make evaluations easy and fun!
The frequency of evaluation also depends on company culture, the number of projects accomplished and the number of result areas being evaluated in your strategy. Considering the amount of time your employees spend on doing the evaluation is an important factor in deciding how many evaluations to conduct. With AssessTEAM you can change and test your evaluation strategy until you get it right!
