A performance review is an assessment of how well you are performing in your position, and is a formal way of acknowledging your contribution. It identifies and defines job strengths and problems, individual potential and areas requiring training and development. This is a valuable opportunity to meet and discuss openly, and honestly the individual’s present performance, it involves discussing the major areas of the job and how much importance to attach to various aspects of the person’s job. The review will also target job-oriented objectives and goals for the coming period and the individual may wish to include program targets related to their own promotional aspirations. The check points selected in the Review are merely appropriate points at which progress can be evaluated, analyzed and future targets be set. This then acts as a self-correcting program setting challenging but attainable goals, recognizing training needs and highlighting successes.
