Be honest with year-end summaries

White-collar workers hiring people to write their year-end work summaries has become a booming business on the Internet. The fact that many white-collar workers don't write their own year-end summaries should prompt employers to adopt better year-end evaluation measures, says an article on guancha.gmw.cn. Excerpts:

It's not difficult for a white-collar worker to hire someone for a few hundred yuan to write his/her year-end work summary, which is mandatory in many companies. The business of hiring "ghost writers" for year-end summaries has become very popular online, especially because the job can be done within a matter of hours, even in three hours.

The problem is that, despite containing several thousand words, which is often mandatory, the contents of such summaries are invariably vacuous.

Writing a year-end summary is supposed to be an opportunity for employees to reflect on their work experience in the past year, and to make plans for the coming year. By hiring someone to write it, employees neither help themselves nor their employers.

Therefore, government departments should take the lead in improving the year-end evaluation methods by simplifying the procedure.
