Major companies such as Accenture, Deloitte and Microsoft have done away with employee performance reviews, replacing them with evaluations given per assignment and other more timely feedback. Last week, we asked if think this is a good idea.
More than half (57%) said "Yes," while 29% said "No." 14% were unsure.
One participant said, "Providing early feedback throughout the year is far better. Timely feedback gives employees an opportunity to improve on weaknesses and build on strengths during the remainder of the year."
Another said, "There should be a combination of both approaches. There definitely should be feedback after each major project and on a more frequent basis (say monthly check-ups), but the annual (semi-annual) review is still important to make all the mini assessments tie together. Employees also should seek feedback instead of waiting for supervision to give it. Employees should seek input from clients as an indicator of their own effectiveness. This should happen as much as possible in real time."
