Are Your Organization's Employee Performance Appraisals One-Sided?

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

One-sided performance reviews leave the manager
and employee with just one side of the information.
How are employee performance appraisals conducted at your organization? Do managers conduct their employee's appraisals, with nobody else giving feedback on the employees' performance?

One of the problems with this type of employee performance appraisal is that they often become very one-sided, but feedback from other people is not only beneficial in terms of the employee's perspective, it's actually of great benefit to the organization too!

The One-Sided Employee Performance Appraisal

While a one-on-one appraisal where the manager gives feedback to their direct report might be seen as the 'traditional' way of managing employee performance, it's important to realize that times have changed. Performance appraisals conducted in this way can be at best ineffective, and at worst have a negative impact on performance.

Why Managing Employee Performance Should Start at the Top?

Monday, May 16, 2016

Is your senior leadership team fully behind your organization's process of managing employee performance? If not, why not? Peer reviews and performance management should always start at the top for the program to be as effective as possible, and if it doesn't, it's unlikely to ever reach its full potential. 

Why? Because, as with any process or initiative in businesses both large and small, the support of management can mean the difference between success and failure.
