Essay title: Introduction to Decision Making


As Director of Human Resources, it has come to my attention that there are some problems with how managers come to the decisions that they do, when completing employee performance reviews.

After reviewing some of the recent employee performance reviews and observing these same employees while they work. I realized that some of the information that was stated in the performance reviews was inaccurate or incomplete to other information that was in the employee records.

These self evaluation forms will be completed and turned into their manager a week before the manager is ready to complete their review.

When a manager receives the self evaluation form from their employee, they will take into consideration what the employee has put into the evaluation when completing the performance review.
