Employee reviews provide great insight for the companies to figure out how their team members doing well. No matter performance review methods differ according to HR applications, you need to conduct right metrics to be able to boost employee empowerment.

If you are interested to make successful employee review in your organization, this Employee Review Template will be useful to provide valuable evaluation feedback. The solution will help to assess the actual performance of your employee!

Employee Review Template Features:

First and foremost, you will find 3 main sections in the template:

  • Dashboard
  • Employee Database
  • Individual Review


The settings have the most common terms used in employee review. But you can change them according to your preferences. You can also edit the total score reference.

Performance Evaluation Bell Curve is what a lot of companies and human resources departments use in order to control how managers evaluate their subordinates. As with all performance review models, this has people for it and against it, but it is efficient in not letting managers rate everyone as excellent. The ideal evaluations would be close to the Bell Curve (expected performance curve on the chart).


Please note that the charts and tables are all dynamic, so there is nothing for you to change or edit there.

After you input your employees and their evaluation, the dashboard will present Top and Worst Performer besides the departmental score.


Go to Employee Database directly after reviewing the settings.

Employee Database:

Thanks to employee database section, tracking employee performance records whenever you want has never been easier. Each individual employee review sheet will store employee data including Department / Team, Job Title, Employment Date, Review Period and Reviewing Manager. You can add all employee data here.


You can click the Review button to visit the personal review form of each employee and to rate them. Please note that the Review button will only appear if you have an employee name next to it, and it will be blank if no name has been inserted.

Individual Review –  Employee Review Template

First part of employee review template consists of quick background information about the employee and reviewer. The only manual input here is the date of the review. Because other information will be automatically reflected from the Employee Database.


Next, you can rate each field by inserting an “X”, which is the only accepted symbol. Once you complete rating, the overall score and overall performance of the employee will show up.

Finally, there is a comment box of both reviewer and employee which you can then print this form for signatures.

    Thanks for the template; looking forward to using this; one quick edit; I need to add more rows as we have 186 employees; is this as simple as unprotecting and adding new rows? If not what would be the steps?

    • Someka

      Hi Patrick,

      First of all, thanks a lot for your interest!

      Our Employee Review template has 50 rows currently and each row has an additional “Review” page for itself. You have to add a new review sheet for each row you have added. For that reason, adding new rows (hence adding a new page) is not an easy thing and it might affect the template working speed. ( the more pages the slower speed )

      But, of course, you might add new rows and review pages to template yourself. Please unlock both worksheets and workbook as a first step and after that display the sheet tabs to be able to see all of the sheets have created for the existing template.

      We recommend to our customers to divide your employees into groups of 50 people and create a new file for each group or department. On the other hand, we also have a customization process if you want us to do it for you.

      Hope that helps! Best wishes,

    I am not able to have the performance evaluation of the best and worst performers automatically filled in. Why it is not calculating the performance evaluation? Can this be related to my data or not?

    • Someka

      Hi Suresh,

      Did you fill the “Review” page for each employee? When you input the “X” sign to evaluate the person, the template calculates the overall score/performance automatically. After that, you will see the analysis on the dashboard. If you won’t fill any column on the review page, it is not possible to see any results on the dashboard section.

      If you still can not see the overall evaluation on the dashboard, please send your file to to our support team to help you better.

      For further questions please do not hesitate to ask!

    I want to ask a question related to employee_review_template.

    1. The template only providing me with 50 rows of employee database, how to add more row without creating a new employee sheet and link it 1 by 1?

    Best Regards,

    • Someka

      Hi Aditya,

      First of all, thanks a lot for your interest!

      Unfortunately, there is not an easy way to do it. Because while our team was creating the template, they prepared separate sheets for each “Review” form.

      That’s why, you need to make adjustments in the whole template( formulas, ranges, etc.) to be able to add new rows. Otherwise, you cannot add another employee review form, even if you add new rows to the employee database sheet. If you need more rows to add new employees to the Employee Review Sheet, you can apply our customization process.

      On the other hand, of course, you can also modify/edit the template by yourself. You should save the template as a different name and fill it for another 50 employees as we suggested earlier.

      Hope our explanation helps!
