Annual Self Evaluation


Annual self-evaluation is the process by which one reviews one’s performance in work or studies once a year. This is usually done by companies where the management gives the employee a chance to assess his own performance for the past year, and by reflecting on his achievements and failures, he can be a better worker. The employee’s comments are also considered during the annual appraisal procedure as the company gets to see things from the employee’s point of view. The self-evaluation process must focus on the goals one set for oneself and see if he has achieved those targets or not and if he has improved his skills.
