Do you conduct formal employee reviews? If not, it might be time to start. At least yearly you should be conducting employee reviews so employees realize their value and know what to work on. It seems to make sense at the beginning of a new year but the time of year isn't important. If possible have coworkers also review each other. That will provide the most accurate review. Conduct the review in an organized fashion with prepared information that you want to review with the employee. Information shared at the review whether positive or negative should not be new information to the employee. Positive and negative advice should be shared when necessary all year. Goal setting should always be a part of the process. Make sure all information discussed is documented so the employee has something to review after the meeting. Also keep notes during the year, maybe even use an automated website, so the review doesn't just involve most recent positive and negative information. Reviews can be an important part of a successful business.
