Taking a Holistic Approach: Reworking the Performance Review

Taking a Holistic Approach: Reworking the Performance Review

What is the best way to evaluate and communicate an employee’s success? What happens when employees don’t meet expectations or aren’t the right fit?

In past decades, the annual performance review was the primary tool used to assess and communicate employee performance. Today’s HR professionals are questioning this approach, changing the way companies measure employee success and communicate both positive and negative feedback. Some businesses are using more frequent and immediate feedback while others are combining old and new practices by providing ongoing performance assessments in addition to annual reviews.

As part of revising the process, some companies are changing who conducts evaluations. Both managers and peers may provide constructive ideas for improving performance as well as recognition for a job well done. This Peer Insight will help you identify and implement the best performance review tools and processes for your organization.
