Please send this sheet to all members working from home, so they can understand how the managers score them at work. Positive assessments will motive the employees to continue contributing. Bad assessments will be something that the employees should fix.
The employees will feel pressured if the manager only gives one-sided assessment. The best solution is to create a dialogue, be it online or offline, so that the managers and the employees can share openly with each other.
Taking the time to listen to the opinions from the employees is an opportunity for you to understand them better, thereby encouraging and motivating the employees to work even better. At the same time, provide a roadmap to help them develop more in the future.
Hopefully the methods shared by HR2B above will best support the managers in assessing the employees working from home accurately and transparently.
