Taj has authorized a form for the evaluation of employees in managerial/supervisory/exempt classifications.The purpose of this evaluation is to assist in accurately appraising Classified Staff employees, to enhance the supervisor/employee relationship, to improve the motivational climate, to serve as a useful tool in the growth and development of employees, and may be used to provide an objective means for allocating compensation increases.

As a complement to this form, it is strongly recommended that supervisors ask staff members to concurrently complete a copy of this form and to bring the completed forms at a designated time for review and discussion along with discussion of this performance evaluation form.While use of the self-evaluation form by supervisors and/or staff members is optional, its use is suggested as a tool to stimulate constructive dialogue regarding work performance.Participation in self-evaluation is intended to ensure the involvement of employees in their own evaluation process, to help establish directions for future activities and to assist in continuous improvement of the quality of services.
