“What’s the problem with performance reviews?” – Caie, from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.
Sure, we all know by now that everyone hates performance reviews. Most people hate giving them, and overwhelmingly employees hate to get them. But surprisingly, that’s not the problem with them: the problem with performance reviews is that they are not useful. They don’t tell us anything about the employee, they don’t help the employees get better, and they certainly aren’t giving us the correct information we need to hire, fire, train, and promote our people.
