Performance evaluations provide another opportunity for communication between employee and supervisor. The written report helps the employee understand the supervisor’s expectations and how well he/she has met those expectations during the evaluation period. It is the formal written documentation of the less formal feedback (both oral and written) between the supervisor and the employee throughout the evaluation period.
