HR Managers know it is important to have accurate job descriptions, and for supervisors to conduct annual employee performance evaluations based on those job descriptions. But who is conducting the annual performance evaluation of the supervisors, directors and executive director? In many organizations and municipalities, the executive director reports to a board of directors, a city/county council, or board of regents. These boards are usually ill-equipped to conduct the necessary evaluations, and often employees are reluctant to provide honest and constructive feedback. Bellingham Mediation & Consulting designs custom evaluation tools and surveys specifically to obtain anonymous 360-degree feedback of executives and directors from their direct reports as well as board and council members whom they report to.
Custom executive evaluations include various survey styles designed to capture Management Skills, Leadership Skills and Overall Effectiveness through in-person anonymous conversations using identical survey questions to gather quantitative data, as well as open-ended comments for more in-depth qualitative feedback.
