Sample Monthly Employee Feedback Form
You can find a sample monthly employee feedback form for your convenience located in the Bright Hub Human Resources media channel. You may download and use this form as a template or just download the form to follow along with this article.
The first part of the feedback form will be typical identifying information that you will find on any form for individual employees. Especially if you run a large human resources department, this information will be vital to being able to effectively incorporate monthly employee feedback into your company - and to make sure that the monthly feedback is filed properly. The top portion of any employee feedback form should include:
- Date of review
- Name of employee and employee ID if necessary
- Department the employee works in
- Employee hire date
- Employee status
- Employee's direct supervisor
The next section will be a simple summary of the employee's performance over the course of the month. Record the main activities and responsibilities the employee has taken on during the previous month. This section shouldn't have any evaluative language in it.
The third section of the monthly employee feedback form will discuss the employee's strengths during the previous month. Be specific here. If the employee regularly finished tasks on time, recognize it here! Be sure that you provide positive feedback for every employee, this will encourage the employee to work harder during the next month. If you cannot find something positive to say, you might want to reconsider why this employee is working for your company.
The fourth section of the form will focus on employee deficiencies for the previous month. Try to pose the employee's need for improvement in positive terms, if you are too critical, then you will run the risk of alienating your employees.
Finally, in the meeting you'll want to work with the employee to come up with some goals to work on in the coming month. Capitalize on the employee's strengths, and work to minimize the employee's weaknesses.
