1.Quarterly Appraisal Form (Word Format)
The appraisal system is in word format and contains four replica appraisals forms for February, May, August and November, enabling you to do quarterly appraisals.
It contains 2 very simple questions that enable employees to self-evaluate in a constructive way, and also has a comments section for managers to provide praise and constructive feedback.
It’s only meant to last 15 to 30 minutes;it’s a check-in.
No scores or performance ratings are given, as this has proven to be confrontational, it’s meant to be a reflective process that encourages honest discussion
2. The One Page Appraisal Form. (Excel Format)
The system contains: 1.) Notes for use, 2.) Appraisal Form, 3.) Appraisal Tracking system.
There are 4 parts to the appraisal form:
1.) Employee Self Appraisal – Employee evaluates own performance.
2.) Manager Appraisal – Manager evaluates the employee’s performance.
3.) Objectives/Targets – Set goals to motivate staff to perform
4.) Personal Development Plan – Set learning goals so staff improve
The appraisal form is uniquely designed in a way so that the employee and manager appraisal and development plan, sit side by side. The theory here is because the business is showing it’s commitment to development, staff will be more comfortable about discussing weaknesses.
The Rating System goes from 4 down to 1 as follows: 4: Exceeding expectations, 3: Meeting expectations, 2: Acceptable with specific improvements, 1. Not acceptable
The Tracker System is a means for tracking performance and is a Digital Dashboard to provide an overall perspective on performance. I’d recommend quick quarterly reviews.
3.The Small Business Employee Bonus Plan (Word Format)
This is a bonus plan system document and it includes everything you need to develop and administer a bonus plan for your small business. It is a 5 page word document of 1505 words in length.
The premise of this bonus plan is simple. Employees are given a bonus pot, which is a % of their salary. This bonus pot is combined with a Company Performance Factor (CPF), Individual Performance Factor (IPF), and Team Performance Factor (TPF) to determine the actual bonus award that will be paid, according to the formula shown below.
Base Salary X Bonus Target X CPF X IPF X TPF = Bonus
