5 Tips for Building a Smarter Review Process

Performance reviews are meant to be valuable, not a chore. Elizabeth Sile offers five tips in an article for Inc. about how to make a better review process.

Superior Processes

First, separate reviews for professional development from reviews for pay increases, because employees get more defensive when a pay bonus is at stake. Second, be honest and do not say certain things only for the sake of avoiding confrontation. Third, do not evaluate according to strict company points; make it an open conversation and put forms aside. Shift the review to the employee by asking them to answer a few basic questions in anticipation of the review, such as, “What can I do as your supervisor to build your skills?” Finally, come prepared, gathering as many examples of good and bad performance as possible in advance. To read these points in depth, consult the original article: http://www.inc.com/guides/201108/five-tips-for-a-smarter-review-process.html
