All supervisors are asked to schedule an appraisal meeting of at least one hour with each employee to listen to the employee’s reflections about his or her work over the past year, reflect on the outcomes of that work, and discuss suggestions for improving the work of the unit through the work of this employee.  This is an opportunity for the employee to provide the supervisor with a formal year-end self-appraisal. This formal wrap-up discussion leads into developing the work plan for the coming year.

When the work plan is used as a reference tool for feedback discussions, and when two-way feedback about work goals is a regular and frequent part of conversations between employee and supervisor, the end of year formal appraisal discussion is a natural wrap-up of those discussions.
