Performance evaluations are one of the most important communication tools an organization can use. They need not be complicated; they just need to be done. Performance evaluations benefit both employee and employer. When it is a time to provide feedback, recognize quality performance and set expectations for future job performance. This is also a time to have candid conversations about performance that is lacking and how performance can be improved. Ongoing performance discussions can assist in avoiding serious problems in the future (Laurenz, 2011).ReferencePeggy Laurenz. “Why Evaluate?
