Before drafting review questions, start by selecting the broader category of employee qualities that you want to measure. There’s a number of different aspects of an employee’s work life that you can collect data around, for example:

Leadership

How well does an employee manage other people and motivate a group of individuals.

Project Management

How does this person approach completing their work product.

Culture

How well does this person reflect the company values.

Career Development

What can this person do to improve their work product and interactions at the company.

Impact

How much of a contribution does this person make to the organization.

Problem Solving

How does this person approach challenges.

Communication

How well does this person interact with co-workers.

The exact mix of employee qualities that are featured in a review is dependent on what an organization identifies as an important input into their decision making process.
