A performance evaluation is an opportunity for a manager and
an employee to meet and discuss the employee's job performance, organizational
priorities, and performance goals. The evaluation should focus on key behaviors
that are important to the organization and the employee's progress in reaching
performance goals. An appraisal may be done on a formal or informal basis,
but ideally it will be an ongoing process. Salary review is often conducted
separately from the performance appraisal.
