We have recently come-up with a structure to grade the overall performance of our employees. The structure involves the employees having a grade in certain qualities which are grouped into our company values. We believe the objective of a performance review should be that both the employee and his/her team leader mutually agree on a performance grade and come up with actions steps until the next review which ensures the employee is able to move towards the ideal grade.
Since the review involves both people mutually agreeing on the grade, we are unsure of how to approach and structure the conversation of the performance review. Do we allow one of the 2 to first evaluate and present what he/she feels and then the other brings in his/her opinions leading to a discussion which hopefully ends in an agreement or is there a better way to structure this?
To give you more context of our value/quality/action structure and grades, you can find more information on our Performance Review Grades.
