What's Your Question?

How to Write a Performance Review

Employers and employees find value in performance reviews. The feedback can range from guidance to praise, thus allowing for both parties to engage in discussion regarding what’s working and what isn’t. It’s for that reason leaders need to learn how to write a performance review using these guidelines.

Regular Feedback is Critical

While a performance review typically has a bi-annual schedule, that doesn’t mean regular feedback in-between those dates shouldn’t be happening. Therefore, look up how to write a performance review sample, and use that as your springboard for regular feedback. In doing so, your employees are sure they won’t be hearing about their performance during their first review. When looking up how to write a sample performance review, you’ll find that they’re comprised of many fundamental components including communication, teamwork and collaboration skills, problem-solving, accuracy and quality of work, dependability, and attendance, and meeting deadlines.

Utilize the Employee’s Job Description

When you’re unsure where to begin, utilize the employee’s job description as a springboard for their performance evaluation sample. In doing so, you’ll can determine if they satisfied all the requirements and responsibilities of the job description’s listings. You’ll also be able to determine if there were aspects of the job description where they were lacking. Be sure the job description is up-to-date before working on the performance review. That way, you’re sure the position hasn’t undergone any changes since the job description was written.

Use Key Points

When writing the performance review, focus only on key points. For example, if the review is about whether or not the employee is achieving their goals, focus on those key points. Examples of performance goals samples include that the employee must complete a certain level of tasks before being considered for a promotion. Some sample resolutions if the employee is not achieving their goals would include that they would implement a strategy for meeting their goals and then set up another check-in with you to assess their progress.

Request Feedback from Colleagues

When writing the performance review, it’s essential to solicit feedback from colleagues who have worked closely with them. This action is often referred to as obtaining 360-feedback because you’re receiving feedback for the employee from his coworkers, boss, and any other relevant staff. Use of coworker feedback samples includes asking employees what they like or appreciate about their coworker, when they thought their coworker did a great job, or what they would like to see change about a situation.

Keep Track of Performance

When learning how to write performance reviews, keeping track of an employee’s performance is part of achieving that goal. You’ll be working with sample performance comments from other employees, as well as logging their attendance, following policies, how well their meeting deadlines, and if they’re achieving their goals. When working on these tasks, you may need a logbook sample that includes information about their daily job performance. For example, the ledger sheet sample could consist of information about if accidents occurred if it’s a factory or cash overages if you’re in the retail industry. It’s essential to keep policies on-hand, like a cash management policy sample or sample IT policies, for example, to ensure they’re up-to-date and ready to present during the performance review.

Find 2023 Writing Internships

If you believe the pen is mightier than the sword, a writing internship can bridge the gap between your college essay and your New Yorker article. Writing internships are available across industries and organizations, from magazines and film studios to nonprofits and tech companies. Writing is a rich and varied field, so it’s up to you to hone your area of expertise and build an impressive portfolio. No matter what, you’ll spend your internship developing written materials for your target audience, with a focus on clarity, grammar, voice, and consistency. To get a great internship in this competitive field, you’ll need a strong portfolio, top-notch communication skills, and basic knowledge of MS Office (and Adobe Creative Cloud if you’re feeling ambitious!).

After your internship, you can pursue a writing career in marketing, communications, publishing, screenwriting, creative writing, or academia. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, writers and authors make a median annual salary of $62,170, while technical writers make $71,850. While the number of writing jobs is expected to remain flat over the next decade, technical writing is expected to grow by 8%, which is faster than average.

Journalist, Author Haley Cohen Gilliland, Research Intern  

Deadline: March 12, 2023. I am a writer and the director of the Yale Journalism Initiative , where I have the privilege of helping Yale students launch their journalism careers. I am currently working on a book about the Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo, a group of Argentine grandmothers who banded together and risked their lives to reclaim the grandchildren stolen from them during their country’s darkest era. The Abuelas’ story has captivated me since I first heard them tell it years ago—in 2012, to be precise, when I began working as The Economist’s correspondent in Argentina — and I am thrilled to be partnering with the wonderful team at Avid Reader Press/Simon & Schuster to publish it. I am looking for an enterprising researcher to help compile a detailed memo on Jorge Rafael Videla, the Argentine dictator who presided over the bloodiest period in his country’s history. Putting together such a memo will require reading and synthesizing books, newspaper articles, historical archives, and government cables—most of which will be in Spanish. I am interested not only in Videla’s actions, but also the motivations behind them. A successful memo will include information about where Videla was on specific dates, detailed descriptions of how others—U.S. government officials, for example—viewed him, and colorful anecdotes that will allow readers to better understand his psyche. I am particularly interested in his interactions—both direct and indirect—with the Abuelas, whose persistence landed him back in jail for the crime of baby theft after he had been pardoned for his other crimes. Learn more and apply here .
