Providing effective feedback to your team members is essential to their success and the achievement of your objectives. It is a key element needed to fully engage each employee’s talent; essential to creating an environment wherein individuals are encouraged to succeed and grow as professionals.
Developing Others is considered an important competency for all managers at UIC.
Provide continuous feedback throughout the year. In addition to conversations with individual employees about their professional development, encourage your team members to utilize the Continuous Improvement: Manager Feedback (.DOC) form to provide structured feedback. You will also find these forms a helpful reference at the end of the year during the Annual Employee Performance Review.
Managers and supervisors should address performance issues when they occur and provide constructive guidance on how to improve skills and competencies. Effective feedback is timely, specific, and relevant to performance. It is constructive, that is, it provides an opportunity to the employee for action. While providing feedback give necessary guidance and instructions for employees to address work expectations.
