Other Comments:
1. (Metro Police) Work test, two-month – four month on new hires;
2. (Gallatin) While our evaluations are tied to pay, it is a 2.5% step increase program, which basically means that to get the pay increase their evaluation must be at a minimum satisfactory level, which as you know is pretty much a guaranteed situation. "Pay for performance" to me is a different type of evaluation, whereby the level of performance can create a different percentage wage increase, if any in some cases.
3. (Metro Water) Quarterly if unsatisfactory review
4. (Kingsport) Awaiting Board approval of pay-for-performance program.
5. (Blount County) Twice a year;
6. (Maryville) When asked if pay is tied to the evaluation, I answered yes because it was either yes or no. However, the introductory and promotional quarterly evaluations are not tied to money. If the annual evaluation is satisfactory and the employee is not topped out, then they receive a pre-determined amount (no flexibility in amount awarded).
7. (Metro Parks) Target upgrade;
c. Has your organization tried 360º Performance Evaluations?
Yes - 5 No - 28
