2022 is here and with it comes the annual appraisal exercise  (Commission staff: 5 January for the launch of appraisal  self-assessments and 12 January for reclassification  self-assessments). It is crucial to understand how this works because it will play a huge part in how your career will progress.
Generation 2004 organises a conference to explain and offer tips. We cover how to prepare your self-assessment and your one-on-one interview with your reporting officer .
As usual, we will also offer one-on-one sessions to help colleagues by reviewing their self-assessments. Here is the link to sign up for our assistance in reviewing your draft text .
Please be so kind as to prepare a first draft of your self-assessment; keep in mind we will help you improve it but not write it from scratch with you .
If you appreciate our work, please consider becoming a member of Generation 2004 .
 Promotion /reclassification  have slightly different timetables (generally reclassification starts 2 weeks after promotions), as do the different agencies (check your intranet for details) but they all begin with a self-evaluation. See DG HR, 2021, Human Resources in 2020  p. 97 point 2 or 2021 Annual Reclassification Exercise , slide 8 for figures on reclassification.
 Generation 2004 thanks the Harassment Watch Network for their input in the 2021 conference: they subsequently published a related text: How you can and you are being harassed through the CDR process. And how the current system encourages that (23.07.2021 )
 Please note that we might need 2-3 working days to do our part and include this time in your planning: it might not be feasible for us to deal with last-minute requests.
