  • Why is it helpful for an employer to know how you view your own performance?
  • When the employer has an idea of how you see yourself, it tells your employer how you relate your goals to the company’s mission.
  • Based on this alignment, your employer can determine your suitability for growth within the organization, which could include new responsibilities or roles that could translate into a promotion.
  • If your self-assessment differs from your employer’s evaluation of you, this may highlight an area in which your employer can help you improve.
  • If management thinks you are ready for promotion, but you don’t, this may prompt a discussion of how to strategize your career advancement.
  • Your employer can inform you of your strengths and weaknesses, offer effective tips on how to improve, and give you an idea of how they see you contributing to the future successes of the company.
