Observation and Feedback About Employee Performance

Find resources, including training and self-study materials, about managing employee performance and providing effective feedback.

Observing your employee's performance and providing objective behavioral feedback about it should be a routine part of the performance management process.

Feedback should be based on observed, factual, specific work-related behaviors, actions, statements, results, and working relationships. Effective feedback helps the employee sustain good performance, develop new skills, and improve performance when necessary.



UCSD Staff Education and Development provides classroom training and self-study materials about observation and feedback.
