My company has an annoyingly thorough review process every six months. Instead of panic-writing my self evaluation when it’s due, I write a little bit every week.
- Each Friday, I have a recurring reminder to write down what I worked on that week.
- I write each of those things in PAR format: Problem, Actions, Results.
- When review time comes, I can copy/paste that doc and I’m done.
If your company makes a big deal out of self evals, give that process a shot.
