Examples of performance accomplishments include meeting specific company advancement standards such as completing sales goals or finishing a project, exemplary teamwork with a wide section of the company's workforce or winning an award within the industry. The accomplishments typically relate directly to the employee's responsibilities and the company's core values in order to show dedication to the job and a commitment to career advancement.
Performance accomplishments can vary between companies and individual positions, though most serve as a measurable and clear example of the employee's expertise or achievement in the workplace, often appearing in an appraisal or evaluation. Some accomplishments come in the form of feedback from coworkers, such as praise for general conduct or performance on a specific project. They can also include outside accomplishments, such as publishing an article in a relevant publication or speaking at a trade show.
Some companies may recognize performance accomplishments that fall in line with a predefined career advancement path for specific roles, known as performance management. These achievements include specific actions that relate to the employee's current position and act as preparation for the responsibilities that come with higher job ranking. For example, a customer service associate achieving a low average response time or completing a specific number of support tickets is a performance accomplishment that prepares her for a role as a team manager.
