There’s lots of talk about how antiquated and ineffective performance reviews are. Most of that is because the process occurs yearly, amid the scramble to meet a deadline. This is especially true for small and growing businesses which normally do not have much in the way of performance management technology in place. Instead, reviews take place using documents and spreadsheets.
One way for growing businesses to stay competitive is by having a performance management system that provides a simplified approach to reviews, allows you to do them whenever and wherever you want, yet still provides deep insights and analysis into what’s happening with your employees. That time has come.
