    Clear View of Murky Personnel Evaluation Process

    This practical guide is a must-read for anyone who conducts performance evaluations - especially for those new to the process. Step-by-step, it explains why you should evaluate employee performance, how to set up a program and how to conduct the evaluations. The appendices alone are invaluable. Author Glenn Shepard provides nearly 60 pages of useful, hands-on materials. Appendix A is packed with words and phrases that will enable you to be specific about your observations of employee behavior in areas such as attendance and workplace safety. Appendix B provides five performance evaluation forms that demonstrate a variety of evaluation techniques, such as using essays or assigning numerical values to weighted descriptive scales. Appendix C includes several self-evaluation forms organizations can use as models. We recommend this book to managers, supervisors and human resource professionals who must develop workable, legally sound employee performance evaluation systems.

    A Must Read for every Owner, Manager & Supervisor

    I purchased this book and was able to read it cover to cover in just a few days. Glenn Shepard has created a wonderful step-by-step guide that I consider a MUST READ for every small-business owner and manager or supervisor. As a national workshop leader Glenn combines his own experience as a business owner with the experiences and research from more than 100,000 managers from Forture 500 companies and small businesses alike. The author writes in a very straight forward manner -- and I like how he does not pull punches with addressing difficult employee behavior issues. Practical and informative -- I will require all my managers to read.

    I no longer dread giving performance reviews!

    This used to be a task I hated- now with Glenn's help I see that performance reviews are a helpful tool in giving much-needed feedback (whether good or bad) to employees. They deserve to know how they are doing, and this book gives managers the terms and techniques (even sample phrases) to help us overcome our phobias on this touchy subject AND keep us out of hot water with HR and the law. A great tool for ANYONE who gives performance evaluations.

    Artful but Constructive Evaluations? YES!

    Glenn Shepard shows you exactly what to do and what NOT to say if you've never had to do a Performance Evaluation before. This book is a definite must-have for every business office. When you are done reading this book, you will have mastered the art of constructive performance evaluations and still have a valuable employee in your company! Not only will your employee be valuable, but with Glenn's help, your employee will become 'invaluable'. I guarantee it!
