Employee reviews

Anyone do this? Got a sample evaluation sheet? I'm going to ride a guy around and show him the good and bad things he is doing.

Hope I can train him to be more detailed and run the mowing guys

I would suggest working side by side with an employee to train them to do the job how you expect it to be done.
Riding around showing them what they have done done wrong could per perceived negatively by an employee.
If you you are aware of things that you want done differently, work with them to show them better and easier procedures.
Sometimes they need a refresher.

We used this as a template - changed some aspects to better align with the industry and our business.

well he said he showed him the good and bad. I dont think its a bad idea. You can both praise and also point out the things you want changed...

He's a young guy...might be 20... Just started in march if this year and never done this before. He caught on quick. I can give him an address and tell him to cut it with no problem.

I've grown a ton. Went from me and a summer guy last year to a crew of 2 with me in the office and doing lawn apps.

This guy loves to work and doesn't mind or complain about the conditions. I try to treat him good. Because of his youth I question his ability to tell others what to do.

If I grow at the same level I may have a crew of 3-4 next year. Or 2 separate 2 man crews and hope he can be "the guy." If he is this guy I need him to understand that I will expect only the best.

I've had a few different employees who have Ben good. They can all cut the grass but the little things get skipped.... Beds, volunteers growing in bushes, vine on the house, blowing out corners or behind trash cans, etc.
