Hi. My name's Mark and we're going to look at how you can write an employee performance review. Now, the purpose of this is, from the organization's perspective, you employ a number of people and it has come to that period of time where you have to review your employees' workload, work rate. Now, this can be done quarterly, half yearly, annually, for two reasons. One, obviously, you want to make sure that you're getting the best out of your employee over that period of time, they're working for you in a productive way, which is good for your business. And, from their perspective, obviously, they want to know that they're doing well, they are working to their potential and everyone's happy with what they're doing. Both parties need to feel good about this. So, in this state, from your perspective, there are a number of issues that you want to consider when looking at this particular employee. One, their actual function, functional job, are they performing that in a comparable way to the previous period or even better than the previous period? Two, timekeeping, are they there? Are they working on time? Are they working to time schedules that you need? Appearance, are they acting in a way that's good in terms of representing your organization? Are they interacting internally and externally in a positive way? Four, in terms of the attitude towards the job itself, do they obviously look like they're doing something positive or are they just going through the motions? You need to think these things through. Now, if it seems to you that the company is benefiting by having them within the organization and they are adding value to your business, if you're aware of it, they, for sure, will be aware of it, and therefore, it is important that you then do something for them that is positive and motivational. That could be financial, it could bonus-related in that regard, it could be that you give them use of a company car, for example, or extra holiday period or something to reward their time. Because, obviously, the more motivated they are, the better your company's going to benefit.
