Employee Self Evaluation

Employee self-evaluation is the process by which an employee analyses his own performance at his workplace to see if he has made any improvements, learnt anything new, identified his limitations and has reached his career goals or not. Before any appraisal is done, the management always evaluates the employee’s performance over a period of time. Some companies also encourage self-evaluation as it helps the employee to know more about himself, his work and where he needs to work on. It also gives the employee a sense of importance and motivates him to do better. This way he becomes an active participant in the performance review process.
