Comment mener un entretien d'évaluation en anglais ?

Publié le 16/03/2018
L’entretien d’évaluation est un entretien annuel entre un salarié et sa direction qui permet de faire le point sur les réussites et les échecs du salarié par rapport à ses objectifs et à ses motivations. Un entretien annuel d’évaluation doit être tourné vers l’action et non être une discussion passive et évasive. Cet entretien peut se dérouler en anglais et il faut donc s’y préparer.
