Anxiety-ridden performance reviews are so yesterday. Image: Shutterstock.
How we work, and how we interact as teams, has changed dramatically in the past two years. In many ways, our relationships with our team leaders and managers have become more personable – less formal – so does a place remain for office formalities?
One such formality is employees’ performance reviews, often anxiety ridden and dreaded by both parties.
Before the pandemic, the Harvard Business Review (HBR, 2016) opened up the conversation around a trend for nixing reviews. It quoted Brian Jensen of the US company Colorcon, who in some HR circles, was viewed as heretical for his methods back in 2002.
