The paper focuses on a new way of assessment in a wood processing company with reference to assessment criteria relevance. The description of the main criteria and sub-criteria provides an opportunity for supervisors to evaluate their subordinates objectively and thus motivate them to achieve higher performance. Each effective system of assessment should be objective and fair. General frame of its creation consists of the following steps: - determination and clarification of roles or duties of employees (enables subordinates to participate in goals establishment and performance assessment), - determination of preliminary and partial goals reflecting company's mission and vision, - regular meeting and monitoring of the process of achievement of set goals, - assessment at the end of the agreed period. The results of a well prepared assessment system will be especially reflected in better motivation of employees towards quality of their work, higher performance, willingness to develop themselves, and also in a positive change of attitudes towards the company, its management whose informal authority and trustworthiness will be strengthened. Consequently the quality of management may improve, especially when it is focused on future development of the company in accordance with the company's strategy and critical company values. Also the work with people is much better. In conclusion the suggested system of assessment enables an organization to systematically work on human resources.
