Conducting Effective Performance Reviews

Research has shown that organizations that conduct performance reviews are more successful than those who do not have a system in place. The first step in a basic system is to develop standards of performance that all employees can understand and agree to.

Setting performance objectives to aim for will give supervisors and employees a like focus, and targets to aim for. Supervisors must also learn how to coach and give feedback, both positive and negative, on a regular and timely basis so that employees can grow and develop. Defensible performance reviews are the culmination of all these activities.
