The assessments made by society’s stakeholders have been a focus of social work organizations. Although the social worker is crucial in reducing hunger, poverty, and empowering communities, they also play a vital role in ensuring that service delivery remains evidence-based (Grinnell et. al., 2019). These assessments serve as the foundation for performance and perception evaluations. Evaluations are designed to focus on quality and preserve social company ethics. Social work has become an internationally recognized and competent profession in recent years. Social work must maintain its credibility by implementing monitoring and evaluation systems that use empirical data. This allows for the analysis, intervention, and improvement of service delivery.
Social work evaluations follow predetermined guidelines. A social manager will review the results of the assessment and raise legitimate concerns. The goal is to identify the strengths and weaknesses in the program. These assessments compare the benefits and the drawbacks of the community, and then create a plan that will help allocate the resources needed for the project. This can often lead to great success.
Through assessment, the program coordinator can further demonstrate the benefits to the community. Baker et al. (2010) These results can be used to increase funding, collaboration, partnerships, volunteers and community acceptance. Resolute and systematic service delivery is required of social workers. Program implementers, however, may be better at delivering services and improving outcomes by setting up staff performance evaluation. Poor teams get retrained while dedicated, well-qualified workers are given less promising goals.
While evaluations of social programs might seem difficult, costly and time-consuming at times, they can play an important role in improving the delivery of services. Social workers view their work as an art form, but evidence-based practices are becoming more common and important every day. It is clear that assessments by social workers can eliminate flaws in programs and improve the delivery of treatment.
