Sysper has probably requested you to complete your self-assessment.
This process is fundamental because it will form the basis of your evaluation and will have a direct impact on your career – on advancement opportunities as much as your next reclassification (3a CA), including any appeal in case you have not been proposed by your Directorate-General or for a future mobility.
You have 8 working days to calmly prepare it. Use them wisely: take your time!
Union Syndicale Fédérale Luxembourg would like to suggest some very simple tips, which may help you, avoid the usual pitfalls and make this procedure a valuable one for you.
Main points to keep in mind for your self-assessment: synthesis, brevity and factuality.
- The self-assessment is not just filling in a form nor is it a shopping list! A good self-assessment should be short, concise and to the point. Present a quantitative and qualitative assessment of your achievements and your professional objectives. Self-assessment does not mean drafting a list of all the actions you carried out during the reference period. It is also advisable for you describe any added value in your achievements. If difficulties arose in the achievement of your objectives, mention them together with an explanation. If you managed many different tasks, it makes sense to present an “executive summary” of a few lines including the quality level of your performance.
- Self-assessment should not consist in criticism of your colleagues, your manager or any other person (other procedures exist for that).
- If possible, avoid using obscure abbreviations. Your achievements must also be understood by readers who are not necessarily familiar with your working environment -this is a particularly important aspect to keep in mind in case of an appeal. More information
