National HR Summit preview: Is the death of the appraisal inevitable?

by HCA27 Jan 2016
The appraisal meeting has traditionally been the cornerstone of best-practice performance management processes. However, many companies are now replacing appraisals with different forms of feedback methods, including coaching, 360-degree reviews and previews – while some organisations have scrapped the whole formalised concept altogether.  

Recently, Millward Brown Head of Talent and Strategy, Cindy Grass, spoke to HC about the new approach that many firms are taking to performance management.
“They are replacing year end appraisals and ratings with in-depth conversations, often drawing on the myriad data points now available about employee and company performance, such as sales information, organisational climate survey results, and employee engagement data,” Grass told HC Online.
