HOW TO USE WUFOO FOR PERFORMANCE EVALUATIONS:


Have you ever broken into a sweat prior to giving or receiving a performance evaluation? Let's face it: it's hard to tell people about the areas where they need to improve. Even stellar performance evaluations can be difficult to give; irrespective of the "scorecard", reviews make people nervous.

We here at Wufoo have had our share of performance reviews, and we thought – hey, why not create online performance review forms for people? When filled in online and sent to the person being evaluated, the form gives the person more time to absorb and prepare for the in-person discussion. Plus, the online format is secure and it can even be set up anonymously.

So whether you need to conduct performance reviews in your office or in your community, Wufoo's got you covered.

Performance reviews in a corporate setting

In a corporate setting, performance reviews give employers and employees a chance to offer constructive feedback. Conducted quarterly or annually, they give everyone the input required in order to improve and refine their skills.

Employee performance: If you're the HR manager or boss, use Wufoo's online employee performance form for your next set of evaluations. The form asks standard questions, such as whether employees meet their deadlines and whether they're hardworking. Plus, you can add your own questions to customise the form.

Management performance: Get a full picture of what's going on in your company by asking your employees to fill in a survey about their manager's performance. With our form, you'll learn whether employees think their supervisor is approachable, whether they use company resources effectively and whether they feel their boss is fair. Add or subtract questions to customise it for your particular corporate need.

Department performance: For teams and departments, we've created an online department performance review specifically to help everyone provide feedback about how they feel their team is working, whether the supervisor is doing a good job and whether team members are acting professionally. When there are a lot of people on the team, the online format makes it especially efficient!

Healthcare performance reviews

If you work in healthcare, you'll fall in love with our online performance review format. We've created a variety of surveys that you can send out to patients or embed into your website. They're confidential and they'll provide critical input to help you and your team improve services.

Hospital performance evaluation: After patients have left your hospital or clinic, learn more about their experience. Did they find the staff easy to talk to? Were they professional? Do they feel well-informed about their treatment options? Gather input on a consistent basis from patients to help you manage the hospital and your staff more efficiently.

Physician performance evaluation: Learn how individual doctors are doing by getting first-hand feedback from the patients themselves. This informative survey will give you an insight into whether the doctor spends enough time with the patient, whether the doctor explains the treatment options clearly and whether the doctor is a good listener. Plus, you can add any additional questions you'd like to ask.

Veterinarian performance evaluation: Does your job involve managing a veterinary clinic? If so, you'll find this veterinarian performance evaluation survey particularly handy. Ask the veterinary clinic’s clients their opinions about how the reception staff treated them, whether they feel their vet listens to them and whether they're satisfied with the clinic's services.

Education performance reviews

What performance review list would be complete without forms that help you evaluate those in education? We haven't forgotten, don't worry. Use Wufoo's online education performance review forms to help you provide feedback in a university setting or for evaluating the local state school system.

University instructor evaluation: Whether you're the one teaching the university courses or whether you manage a university teaching department, we bet you'll find our online university instructor evaluation form useful. Find out what the students think: Is the instructor easy to meet with outside of class? Do they find the coursework challenging? Ask these questions – plus much more – with this comprehensive survey.

Local state school performance evaluation: State schools have their own set of challenges, so obtaining community feedback is critical in helping schools improve the quality of the education they offer. With our survey, you can find out what the community thinks about issues such as a school's use of technology or the quality of its teachers, and people can give input about the curriculum.

Give your whole team access to Wufoo's survey tools

To make setting up performance reviews easier, make sure you take advantage of Wufoo's User Management system, which allows your whole team to have their own unique login capabilities. They can either create their own forms or download ones you set up for them. Additionally, they can look up reports and study their data. You have the ability to set permissions and assign the users who need access. This feature is particularly handy if you want your whole department to create evaluation forms to hand out.

What survey program would be complete without some analytics?

Once you've compiled all of the performance evaluations, set Wufoo's reporting tools to work for you. Find out whether there are trends from the feedback you receive and set up the data in the way you want to see it, e.g. in graphs, charts or by key metrics. If you're taking a large sample of evaluations, you'll really love this tool. We promise.
