Em­ployee eval­u­a­tions pol­icy up­dated by County Com­mis­sion

♦ Up­date to malt bev­er­age or­di­nance also ap­proved

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - By Sean Wil­liams [email protected]­hoo.com

Af­ter much con­sid­er­a­tion, Polk County’s com­mis­sion­ers ap­proved the new per­son­nel pol­icy per­tain­ing to em­ployee perf or­mance eval­u­a­tions, and work­ers will now be graded in nu­mer­ous dif­fer­ent ar­eas to de­cide an over­all score of ei­ther ‘Out­stand­ing,’ ‘ Ex­ceeds Ex­pec­ta­tions,’ ‘ Meets Ex­pec­ta­tions,’ ‘ Be­low Ex­pec­ta­tions,’ or ‘ Un­sat­is­fac­tory.’

The pol­icy has been in the works since May, but the group de­cided to tidy their doc­u­ment up be­fore mak­ing it the of­fi­cial eval­u­a­tion form.

Re­view­ers will be asked to use a cur­rent job de­scrip­tion to rate the per­son’s level of per­for­mance us­ing the pro­vided def­i­ni­tions, review- with the em­ploy­eeeach per­for­mance fac­tor used to eval­u­ate him or her, and give an over­all rat­ing via the def­i­ni­tions.

Grad­able traits in­clude ad­min­is­tra­tion, knowl­edge of work, com­mu­ni­ca­tion, team­work, de­ci­sion mak­ing, prob­lem- solv­ing, ex­pense man­age­ment, in­de­pen­dent ac­tion, lead­er­ship, change man­age­ment, cus­tomer re­spon­sive­ness, per­sonal ap­pear­ance, de­pend­abil­ity, safety, re­spon­sive­ness, and oth­ers.

Not ev­ery cat­e­gory will ap­ply to ev­ery em­ployee, but all ap­pli­ca­ble cat­e­gories will be graded be­tween ‘ Un­sat­is­fac­tory’ and ‘ Out­stand­ing.’

“The main thrust that we talked about is guar­an­tee­ing that each full­time em­ployee of Polk County would have a writ­ten an­nual job per­for­mance eval­u­a­tion,” com­mis­sioner Hal Floyd said dur­ing the June 4 work ses­sion. “That would be con­ducted by the em­ployee’s im­me­di­ate su­per­vi­sor. It would be guar­an­teed to oc­cur within a few days of the em­ployee’s an­niver­sary of hir­ing, and ob­vi­ously, the eval­u­a­tion would point out good, bad, de­fi­cien­cies. If the eval­u­a­tion were deemed nec­es­sary be­fore the next an­nual review, the su­per­vi­sor could, at his or her dis­cre­tion, sched­ule an eval­u­a­tion.”

Malt Bev­er­age Or­di­nance

An­other or­di­nance that saw re­do­ing in­volved malt bev­er­ages and the process for mea­sur­ing their lo­ca­tion rel­e­vant to other house­holds.

Now ap­proved, those serv­ing the drinks have a much more clear, de­fin­i­tive guide­line.

“Its kind of vague, the way the or­di­nance is writ­ten now, so this clears it up to say ‘from the front door of the pro­posed es­tab­lish­ment to the right of way, down the right of way, to the front door of the near­est house,” county man­ager Matt Den­ton said. “It used to say ‘to the prop­erty line to the corner of the build­ing.’ It was vague. This kind of cleaner or­di­nance.”
