Reviewing the Performance Review

    Listen 00:48:44

    Guests: Sam Culbert, Brian Kropp

    As the fiscal year winds down, it’s time for us cubicle dwellers of America to go through the oft-dreaded employee performance review process. But how effective are performance reviews in motivating workers, and what is really going on when people are evaluated but once a year? We’re joined by SAM CULBERT, professor in the Anderson School of Management at UCLA and co-author of Get Rid of the Performance Review! How Companies Can Stop Intimidating, Start Managing – and Focus on What Really Matters. We’re also joined by BRIAN KROPP, Human Resources practice leader at CEB, a management company.
