I'm delighted to see Accenture, Deloitte, Adobe and others letting go of performance appraisals. The rewards for doing so will be massive.
Performance appraisals are a part of a nasty hangover of the Industrial Revolution where it was believed we could apply what worked for things to people.
Appraisals are fine for houses, cars, jewellery, and things in general, never for people.
If you're still to move on performance appraisals and would like some help please contact me on +61 418 807 898. For 25 years I've been helping people to eliminate them and enjoy the rewards that immediately follow.
By taking this action you will immediately save time, energy, and money, and see improvements in employee engagement.
