Performance Reviews - People want to know how they are doing

People want to know how they are doing. Leverage ongoing conversations about what’s next, and review what they’ve done and how they’ve fit through less frequent reviews. Even an annual review can be effective when what’s discussed is not a surprise.

Performance Reviews - what to keep doing and what to stop doing

Performance reviews have been discarded by a few companies. We don't recommend stopping them completely; people want feedback and many want it documented. But there is a lot to stop doing with and in reviews. And there are other forms of performance communication, such as future-looking goal setting and ongoing conversations and measurement to start doing.
