Purpose: To write a clear, well-constructed annual performance evaluation of an employee, providing enough
information to determine whether your direct report should receive a raise (and how much) and what goals he should
strive for in the future.
Student Objective: To gain experience determining appropriate details to include when evaluating an employee?s
performance; to practice writing for multiple audiences in a sensitive and constructive way.
Your direct report, John Smith, an outside sales representative, working for a consumer packaged goods company,
completed his first year with the company in December. It is now time for you to do his annual evaluation to determine
whether he should get a raise and how much he should receive. Please bear in mind: a five percent raise is considered
good. You may go up or down with a raise from this point.
You are provided with the following information from John Smiths? personnel file:
? John did not make his goals until his 3rd month with the company and since has made the next 9 monthly sales
? John missed a team meeting on January 30th due to new employee orientation he had to attend.
? John has had the highest placement of new sku?s for his district compared to his peers.
? On November 18, John was expecting a large order to be delivered to one of his accounts for a special weekend
promotion. Unfortunately, the truck broke down and John went and placed the product in his company car and
made 3 special trips for his customer to ensure the product was at the event. This took John nearly 10 hours of
driving and he was finished by 2am due to the distance he had to drive.
? John?s line manager received a phone call that he had been late to a high profile planning meeting from one of their
highest volume customers.

? How did John?s actions have an impact on other people?
? What skillsets might John be good at based on what he did?
Put yourself in the position of being John?s line manager. Write John?s annual evaluation for the period October 2014October, 2015, indicating whether he should receive a raise or not, how much he deserve, what his rating is and what
areas you believe he should work on in the future.
