Employee self-assessment forms can be used to overview what a person's responsibilities are at a company or as a way to persuade an employee to look inwardly at their strengths and weaknesses as a member of a team or company. Self-assessment forms are often tailored towards a specific company.
Because many companies create their own employee self-assessment forms, the forms come in many specific and different types. MIT Human Resources offers sample forms that companies can use as inspiration or that employees can use to promote thoughtful responses in performance reviews. These forms are aimed at promoting a career development focus in the self-appraisal process. The Society for Human Resource Management has an example of a lengthier type of self-assessment form, which focuses on more specific skills and duties within a company.
