NewPerformance Reviews: pathway to future development

Performance reviews are part of a holistic approach to managing individual performances and it is an important part of the Performance Management Cycle. These reviews should be positive experience which motivate, inspire and support employee’s growth and give them confidence.

  • So how often should organisations be holding performance reviews?
  • What should make these reviews to be an engaging, uplifting and mutually effective experience?

With the changing times, the traditional annual reviews have had limitations such as it focused on past performance, the process was time consuming and bureaucratic feedback came from single source only and was not frequent enough.

More and more organisations are steering away from the traditional annual performance review towards more regular and development focused, real-time feedback discussions – the future-proofing performance process in this fast changing, agile work environment is a way to boost productivity and meet the demands of today’s workforce.
