Gallup recently found that only 1 in 7 employees (14%) described their own performance reviews as inspiring when it came time to improve their performance. Further, about a third of the time, performance reviews and the traditional feedback process can make situations worse, according to Gallup. If traditional performance evaluations don’t help workers, what does a modern solution look like? Does it involve technology? Integration with other systems? Should employees be appraised more often — or less?
To answer these questions and more, Workforce.com conducted the Modernizing Performance Evaluations survey. We asked HR and learning leaders for their opinions on the current state of performance reviews. How do organizations approach feedback? Do they align expectations against business KPIs? How well do they adopt technology for better integration between evaluations and other systems? We are pleased to share our findings in this white paper.
Workforce applies the scientific principles of engineering and research to advance the happiness, welfare and efficiency of those who work. Pioneered by James R. Angell President of Yale and Carnegie Corp. the origins of Workforce stretch back 97 years to a joint initiative between the Engineering Foundation and the National Research Council. Our call is the continued growth and unification of these modern engineering, labor, management and educational bodies to lead workforce science to its farthest possible forward point.
