This Episode: Effective Remote Appraisals

In this week’s episode, Lucinda talks you through the ways in which you can better prepare for remote appraisals. Also, Lucinda gives practical guidance on how to evaluate fairly in what has been the most abnormal of years.


  • Indeed, remote working has thrown up many challenges, including wellbeing, home schooling, or remote working itself. In many cases, we have spent more time at home than we have in the office.
  • Certainly, we must consider how different the last year has been in terms other than geography. Many factors are actually the same, but simply feel different.
  • Without clear objectives, or diluted milestones due to geography, it can be increasingly difficult to assess or appraise performance. Therefore, we must look to other markers.
  • Furthermore, behavioural evidence is increasingly important for organisations, and yet without face to face contact, many find it difficult to assess this. But even when working remotely, we still have a sense of interaction.
