Mitchell Employee Evaluation Module

The second product I ever created was supposed to be a way to help people in leadership positions not only evaluate their present employees, but determine criteria for interviewing and hiring new employees.

The Mitchell Employee Evaluation Module was that attempt. What prompted it was a conversation I was having with my friend Jeanette Sweet, a human resources expert and professional, on how employers often have no real clue in what they really need to consider when hiring new people. So many get hooked on degrees and stupid stuff like that, while many of us know people that have years of experience and are very good at something but never took the time to get a degree.

Even though I’d written the book, I felt I needed an actual product as well. So I sat down and wrote out an outline for the project. I knew it didn’t have to be large, and it’s not because no one would use it. Actually, the hardest part of it all wasn’t in the outline or the criteria, but in creating the worksheets so they’d be easy to use.

The basic idea is to whittle one’s way through some special headline criteria, 3 categories, then drill down a little bit into 46 specific things one might want to look for in a new employee, or evaluate a current employee on. With this criteria, managers figure out exactly what they want, and they’re good to go.

So, this is a specific product for only those who hire and fire, or need to evaluate people who work for them. I’ve sold some, but not all that many. It’s the most expensive product I have as well, even though it’s also the simplest to use. So, if you don’t check this one out, I fully understand. But if you need to do either of those things, the Mitchell Employee Evaluation Module is for you.

  • I’m curious Mitch if this is similar to those evaluation forms they make you fill out. I know it’s a tool for the employer but if it runs on the same premise. I remember taking one and it asked “If you saw an employee stealing would you report him/her” and “Would you try to physically stop two employees from fighting each other” things of that nature. So is the same concept so to speak?

    • Nope, nothing like that at all, Karen. If you go to the page you’ll see where I give a small sample of the types of criteria that are available to the user. There’s no “trap” questions or things like that. It’s just straight forward criteria that an employer may or may not have thought of, but can use for evaluations.
