How useful are traditional employee reviews in your organization?
Many organizations rely on annual or semi-annual employee reviews to evaluate employee performance.The traditional employee review consists of a manager (or supervisor) who complete a series of evaluation questions to rate an employee’s performance. Additionally, often times the employee is asked to complete a self-assessment of their own performance. Once the manager reviews the two evaluations, the two parties meet face-to-face to discuss results and elaborate more on performance.

When designed and administered properly, employee surveys can provide invaluable information to any organization, and act as an effective performance management tool. The benefits of uncovering your employees’ opinions and views, and taking action can help improve employee retention and increase productivity, as well as provide a benchmark to measure improvement.
The success of any organization depends on the quality of their employees. Many organizations have either prospered or declined because of their workforce. Employees that are pleased with their job are typically more productive, and therefore work harder and generate a profit for their organization.
