Your direct report, John Smith, an outside sales representative, working for a consumer packaged goods company, completed his first year with the company in December. It is now time for you to do his annual evaluation to determine whether he should get a raise and how much he should receive. Please bear in mind: a five percent raise is considered good. You may go up or down with a raise from this point.
Put yourself in the position of being John’s line manager. Write John’s annual evaluation for the period October 2016- October, 2017, indicating whether he should receive a raise or not, how much he deserve, what his rating is and what areas you believe he should work on in the future.
