Performance Reviews With Little Time In Role
- What do I do when I have to do a performance review on someone I don't know well?
- How do I get data for a performance review?
- How do I find out how successful my new reports have been previously?
Many firms do annual reviews all at the same time, and usually that means at the end of the calendar year. So, for many managers at this time of year, you're faced with having to do a review on someone whom you really haven't spent sufficient time with.
What do you do when you have to review someone whom you haven't supervised for more than perhaps a few months? Obviously, we encourage you to go to our previous casts on reviews, which are some of the most popular on Manager Tools. They do a great job of laying out in excruciating detail exactly how to do a review for anyone.
But in this cast, we recommend some additional tactics to help you with those whom you haven't known as long. Maybe they came to you recently, maybe you got promoted or took your role over late in the year. In Manager Tools style, we tell you what to do and how to do it.
