The performance appraisal meeting serves as a collaborative planning session during which both the supervisor and employee can take an in-depth look at past and current performances and can together set new goals and objectives for the coming year. The meeting helps the supervisor, and employee establish a clearer understanding of the employee’s job duties, responsibilities and priorities. It also provides an opportunity for the supervisor to coach the employee on how to become more proficient and productive.
Performance appraisals are conducted annually; however, a more frequent assessment of performance may be arranged as required due to various reasons, including reclassification or reassignment. A Merit employee may also request a performance evaluation from his or her supervisor at any time.
