The annual performance review. It’s a process that’s universally dreaded by managers and employees alike. And there’s good reason for these strong reactions. No matter how much time and attention organizations spend on re-engineering the evaluation process, it still seems to end up a subjective, confusing and sometimes even demoralizing exercise.
