Team Evaluation Report or Employee Evaluation Form is a way of reviewing the performance and progress of the employees by getting information on their goals, skills, and achievements. In order to evaluate team performance and give them useful advice for their future projects, one needs to follow certain parameters.

As a team leader or manager, you need to provide clear and achievable targets for the team. You need to find out what is quality work and give them examples of successful standards. You can utilize team discussion to make them understand how to compare their performance with that of the set standards and achieve their goals. You can also find out strategies to help your team close performance gaps.

Listen carefully to your team members, and understand what they are trying to convey during your training programs and even interviews. Some employees want to be as transparent as possible but some employees are not comfortable sharing what bothers them during the work process. So, you need to get the confidence of every employee so that they comfortably share their feedback that will remain confidential with you and also help you set up operational efficiency in a better way.

If your employees don't turn up at the evaluation interviews, you can convince them in a friendly manner to meet you so that you understand what are their important challenges faced during the project work. Maybe they felt overburdened with the workload due to the absence of a few team members or they may have different views of getting work done, which they feel doubtful to share with you. So, you need to bring to the table the viewpoints of each and every team member and then take the decision that is apt for your team.

Many team evaluation reports go wasted if the suggestions or analysis found in the report are not used for the next project. Every new project requires a new set of planning and execution. You cannot close the unsuccessful projects' learnings mentioned in the report just like that. In fact, you should re-read them with your team so that the findings of the team evaluation are used to create a more engaging workplace for your team. You need to work on forwarding planning but in a more careful way so that your team feels more welcomed and productive while they work on the next project.

Consistency and growth should be your mantra and mentioned in the interactions you have with your team. You need to convince your team that all the feedback and evaluation are done so that your team members are consistent at work and also help them grow in their careers.
