Document all successes and failures (fact, quantity, and impact) of each significant success or shortcoming..

An approximately 500-word evaluation of Bill Blizzard′s performance in a narrative format (no bullets) referring to the employee in the third person (as Bill and Mr. Blizzard, not as “you”). Your effort will be graded on adherence to guidelines (see guidelines in Chapter 3 description), content (including the presence of these required headings: ACCOMPLISHMENTS, STRENGTHS, AREAS NEEDING IMPROVEMENT, SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT, and PROMOTION POTENTIAL), and fairness to this employee and to you as his employer. Remember to document all successes AND failures using the FACT, QUANTITY, and IMPACT/RESULT of each significant success or shortcoming. NOTE: For this one assignment, you are permitted to make use of the phrasing supplied in the guidelines. Consider the guidelines as your notes about your employee. So (for this paper ONLY) it is not plagiarism for you to write “Bill has been” (followed by a phrase or sentence that appears in the guidelines)…. Most of the appraisal should be in your own words, however. Turnitin.com can help show you if you have written an original (mostly) document.
