The Benefits of Self-Appraisal
A self-appraisal form can
- help you prepare for the annual performance review conversation with your manager
- serve as the basis for a conversation about your current position, your contributions to your department, and your development interests and needs
- be a useful component of your self-directed professional development process
- be an important step in a self-directed career planning process (read more about career planning)
If your manager doesn't suggest that you complete a self-appraisal form, consider asking if he or she would be willing to include your self-appraisal in the review conversation.
