If you want to give your employees effective feedback, these three tips will help you out


Tip #1: Give your employee adequate notice of the meeting
 

You must give your employee enough time to prepare for your feedback session, so you don't catch him off-guard when he receives the feedback.
 

Set up a meeting request and let him know what information you want him to bring to the meeting.
 

Also ask him to do a self-evaluation of his own performance against the requirements of the job.
 

Tip #2: Carefully select the appropriate meeting place and its environment

Where you give your employee feedback is important.  You must ensure your feedback venue is private so you avoid disruptions.
 

In fact, the Practical Guide to Human Resources Management says ensure the following for your meeting place:
 

  • Pick a quiet office, preferably one away from the work area and your office.
  • Close any blinds or curtains to eliminate distractions and ensure privacy.
  • Make sure there are no interruptions during the feedback session.
  • Place two chairs in the centre of the room, away from the desks or tables.

 

Tip #3: Focus on behaviour you can see
 

Don't assume you know what's going on in your employee's head.
 

Instead, focus on describing his actual behaviour and explore with him the impact of this behaviour in the workplace.
 

We've just scratched the surface with these tips. To get the full list of tips you can use to give your employees effective performance feedback so they can improve, check out the Practical Guide to Human Resources Management. It has more than ten tips for you.
