Title:Conducting Performance Evaluations
Author(s):Cohen, Lucy R.
Subject(s):Library personnel management
Abstract:In order for any performance evaluation system to be effective, it should provide believable information about a staff member's job performance. A performance evaluation system based on performance goals and measures is an effective system which satisfies those conditions. This article provides a summary of the discussions and materials covered during the performance evaluation workshop conducted at the 29th Allerton Institute. It reviews the reasons for conducting performance evaluations, the concerns and potential pitfalls to performance evaluations, and provides an in-depth description of a goals-based performance evaluation system.
