Coop Management Evaluation Reports
Apprasing Manager performance
A major duty of the board of directors is to hire and appraise the performance of the cooperative’s manager. In the past, this responsibility was recognized pri-marily by directors of larger cooperatives. Today, directors of all cooperatives recognize the importance and necessity for objectively appraising the manag-er’s performance. Many smaller cooperatives don’t have the advantage of a per-sonnel department to implement a program of appraisal or provide the training to productively conduct the appraisal. The publication is a selection of proven tools from multiple sources. It provides every cooperative with the necessary tools to implement and conduct a proper system for evaluation.
annual evaluation of the executive director
Because the executive director is so central to the success or failure of the agency, evaluation of the executive director by the board is an important component of the board's responsibilities. But too often evaluations (and job descriptions) are undertaken only when the board has become unhappy with their chief executive. An annual, written evaluation both documents the executive director's achievements and shortcomings, and helps the executive director understand areas for improvement or where the board is insufficiently informed. Typically, a committee of the board (often the board officers) leads the evaluation process, reports on the evaluation to the entire board, and recommends salary for the next year.
