No matter how much people complain about doing performance reviews, they are an essential tool to motivate employees, improve communication and drive business results.
But, all too often, companies seem to stumble in their efforts to make the appraisal process less cumbersome, less onerous and less flawed.
One common pitfall is managers—and organizations—falling into a "review rut". Many traditional systems are viewed as burdensome and time consuming; managers resist writing, reviewing and preparing evaluations. And, rather than promoting communication, some systems actually limit feedback to a proscribed "review time" once or twice a year!
So how do you make the process more meaningful, less tedious, less biased and an effective morale-boosting business practice?
The remedies are varied and as many as there are organizations—ranging from coaching for ill-prepared managers, to separating compensation from the performance review process, to inserting calibration meetings into the process, having employees evaluate themselves as part of the process, and having and HR pro review the ratings to ensure fairness, thoroughness and to help spot training coaching and training needs for managers and employees.
Performance reviews are the foundation of effective talent management, so they really need to work.
