Suppose you are a supervisor. What errors might you make when preparing a performance appraisal on a clerical employee? How might you avoid those errors?

It can be difficult to prepare a performance review, but it may be part of your job. If this is the case, and you are attempting to watch a personal assistant you may find yourself making under estimates of how valuable their work actually is. First, clerical employees often become exponentially useful the e longer they are around. They learn office trends, their employer’s preferences, and many of them become agents of change in the workplace as they observe a lot of the operational issues day to day. Also, hiring a new employee is expensive, so appreciating your clerical worker in their review would be beneficial.
