Employee Performance Review Best Practices

There is a fine line between an effective performance evaluation and a bad one. When done right, performance evaluations lead to motivation, goal alignment, and enhanced productivity and engagement.

Performance reviews are an opportunity for both managers and employees to create bridges and find ways to overcome challenges and celebrate accomplishments. Therefore, conducting frequent reviews is better than waiting for problems to grow bigger.
