Performance reviews are a critical tool for providing feedback, recognising achievements, and identifying growth opportunities. By leveraging Claude AI, you can enhance the quality and impact of your performance review processes. This tutorial will guide you through key steps to optimise performance reviews using Claude's capabilities.

Steps we’ll follow in this tutorial:

  • Prepare for performance review discussions
  • Conduct more productive performance review meetings
  • Provide higher-quality written feedback
  • Create tailored development plans

Conduct more productive performance review meetings

During the actual performance review meeting, an AI notetaker can be used to transcribe the discussion. You can then input this transcript into Claude to summarise key takeaways, suggest next steps, and identify areas that may require follow-up questions.

These were the responses from [Name] in our latest performance review meeting. Provide a summary of the main takeaways and suggest 2-3 specific next steps. If you identify any areas where I should dig deeper or ask follow-up questions, please suggest those as well.

Provide higher-quality written feedback

After the meeting, use the key points and examples discussed as inputs for Claude to generate a draft of the written performance review. Claude can ensure the feedback is clear, specific, constructive, and includes impactful examples. It can also suggest additional details to make the feedback more actionable.

Based on the key points and examples from [Name]’s performance review discussion, please generate a draft of their written performance review. Ensure the feedback is clear, specific, and constructive in tone. After generating the draft, please review it and suggest any additional examples or details I could include to make the feedback more impactful and actionable.

Create tailored development plans

Based on the growth areas identified during the review, Claude can suggest personalised development activities for the employee. It can also generate a draft individual development plan with SMART goals. Leverage Claude to periodically check in on the employee's progress against their plan.

Considering the development areas identified for [Name], please suggest 3-5 specific development activities that could help them grow in these areas. Then, generate a draft of an individual development plan, including SMART goals, for the next 6 months. Let's plan to check-in on [Name]’s progress against this plan on a monthly basis.
