WRITING PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVES
Tips for writing objectives:
Think About It: why do you
|•||Focus on describing the results you want to achieve, not the activities you will perform.|
|•||Do more than simply restate your job duties.|
|•||Use the “who, what, and when” approach. State clearly what will be accomplished, who is going to accomplish it, and by when.|
|•||Begin objectives with an action verb|
|•||Make sure objectives are SMART|

Jared's job description states that he is responsible for filling the book orders that come in on his shift.
One of his objectives might be:
Follow the steps in the “Fill Orders” procedure to fill each book order that comes in on your shift. All orders must be filled within two working days.
During the evaluation period, Jared's supervisor will observe his performance to see whether he is meeting this objective. If he fills the orders according to the procedure and within the specified time, his performance in this area will be considered satisfactory.
