Evaluation

Do not have much time to continue posting on my Melbourne trip. Have been busy doing evaluation for the staff. It’s quite a tough task. Anyway I guess most of you guys are bore seeing my Melbourne photos and short notes on the trip. Coming back to the evaluation, I have been doing this for few years and I still find it difficult. How is one suppose to put a point to someone performance? It’s so subjective. My 90 points could be meant for Bill Gates and another colleague 90 points could be meant for Krisbeardin and Hairymargin (just a fictitious name for actor of dumb and the dumber).

Especially for staff that newly joins, it’s even difficult. They are just so “new” to this dog eat dog world. They still look at the world through the eyes of an innocent child. Everything could still be one piece of white paper. If the points given are bad it could even cause them to lose confidence. It could be a jolt to them as most I believe is academically strong but they still lack the “ohm”.

Or should I just introduce them to the reality of this world, shake their confidence a bit and let them grow up, slowly blooming. I guess I will do just that by putting what I feel is an honest assessment of them. Oh as for dumb and dumber, I just evaluated you also and my cross has just gone to the other box.

Yup, I went through that. I was thinking not doing it, but it is not fair to some. Then just do it. The best is that I have to review it with them to get them to agree with the point. Damn difficult to be human..

The annual appraisal is the hardest thing to do. When doing the appraisal we tend to remember the last events or performance of the staff a few months before the appraisal date. We cannot remember all the achivements or blunder that a staff have made before that.

The moral to the above is to give your best performance 3 months before the appraisal date and hope for the best scores that your boss can give you!!
