Performance Review

What is an employee performance review?

A performance review is a formal, regulated assessment mechanism in which managers and other key stakeholders evaluate an employee’s work performance. The purpose is to learn more about their strengths and weaknesses, offer constructive feedback for skill development in the future, and assist with goal setting.

Whichever methodology you choose for performance reviews, a well-planned and executed appraisal boosts employee engagement hence aligning performance with business goals and drive productivity. Set and measure employee objectives, manage appraisals, and facilitate continuous 360-degree feedback to accelerate individual and organizational growth.

Organizations are evolving their HR functions and human capital management (HCM) strategies and are shifting focus from minimizing talent costs towards maximizing talent’s potential. Organizations and HR are working to optimize talent strategically to improve the way business is done.

Performance Management is focused on maximizing people development, improving the performance of individuals and the entire organization. Traditional approaches also focus primarily on business efficiency and process, instead of individual engagement and growth.

Performance Management Software can transform people development, enabling supervisors to trace contributions from individuals and teams with more accuracy and solid data. It can also help supervisor’s measure outcomes with better transparency and impact because evaluations can be more closely linked in time to the particular performance being evaluated.

Why are performance reviews important?

As well as long-term positive outcomes, performance reviews offer an immediate lift – not only for businesses but for employees who want an overview of their strengths and weaknesses and progress in their careers. Here are some of the benefits performance reviews can offer:

1. Aligning personal roles to business goals
A job performance review is a chance to make sure everyone understands the organization’s vision and goals and how their work fits into the bigger picture. Individual performance drives organizational performance.

2. A clear understanding of job roles
Performance management empowers individuals to think about their role within the organization and clarify any areas where they have questions. When employees and supervisors can clearly understand and own their specific job duties, any ambiguities in the workplace are eliminated. Each person is accountable for their work and responsibilities.

3. Regular feedback about performance
Regular feedback contributes to better all-around communication in the workplace. Performance reviews help to identify an individual’s strengths and weaknesses, and most importantly, give employees a better understanding of the expectations that they are being held to.

Performance management can be a motivational tool, encouraging employees not only to feel more satisfied in their work but to take action beyond what’s expected.

4. Career development
The performance review presents the opportunity to plan for and set objectives to further develop an employee’s career. Performance management will also help them gain any additional training or mentoring which can act as a basis for HR’s development of future succession plans.

5. Rewards for good performance
Performance management offers a variety of rewards beyond just compensation that show gratitude for a job well done, such as time off and bonuses.
