Description Employee evaluations are one of the most important personnel activities in the human resources management system, regardless of whether the context is a private organization or the public sector. For this reason, researchers have focused on the evaluation system as a whole for a number of years, particularly in terms of individual methodologies. In this paper, we focus on practice in regional government offices in the Czech Republic. Our goal was to determine which methods of employee evaluation the offices selected make use of, and the extent to which these differ. We were interested to find out whether public administration institutions in the Czech Republic follow NPM recommendations and attempt to introduce best practice management methods into the private sector. We determined that in all three cases selected, offices introduced new progressive methods of evaluating their employees (in two cases, competency-based and in one case, using the BARS method) and are not lagging behind the private sector in this organizational area. The paper undertakes a detailed comparison of the evaluation methods used in these offices and a brief evaluation of them.
