Alternatives to the Traditional Performance Review and How to Implement Them

Alternatives to the Traditional Performance Review and How to Implement Them

The best performance reviews allow managers and human resource professionals to communicate through the sharing of ideas, opinions and information.

There are several problems with traditional performance reviews. In traditional performance reviews, managers often tell the employee how they measure up and assume that they both perceive the employee’s job the same way. This assumption may lead to miscommunication of job duties and how it relates to good performance. While traditional performance reviews are usually effective at separating excellent employees and very poor employees, these types of reviews don’t differentiate well among the vast middle ground. For a more balanced and complete view of an employee’s performance, alternative methods provide a more balanced approach.
