Mid-Year Check-In Conversation Guide for Managers and Employees

Mid-year check-ins that optimize employee performance and guide development

Mid-year check-ins are a great opportunity for managers and employees to connect on goal progress, reconfirm priorities, and to give (and get!) insight into the kind of support employees need to be successful their roles. These structured syncs reinforce a culture of ongoing coaching and feedback – one that strengthens the manager-employee relationship.
Like any performance conversation, mid-year check-ins work best as a two-way dialogue where both parties share their perspectives on performance wins and challenges from the first half of the year. They then decide what is next for the employee together, which can transform an employee’s performance and development for a richer, more engaging employee experience.
And the key to a successful mid-year check-in? Preparation.
