Is This the Death of Performance Reviews?
“[Performance reviews] are an intimidating tool that makes employees too scared to speak their minds, lest their criticism come back to haunt them in their annual evaluations. They almost guarantee that the owners — whether they be taxpayers or shareholders — will get less bang for their buck.”
So if your company eliminated performance reviews, what would you replace them with?
Lance Haun at TLNT has a few ideas about what management can do:
- Become more aligned with employee/manager expectations
- Empower and motivate employees to do well
- Implement regular feedback loops and self-assessment
Another idea is to use different kinds of assessment software.
