April 2012 Chapter Meeting: The Annual Review: Is it Necessary?

    Annual performance reviews usually are a waste of time.  They are too infrequent and too formal to be of any value for the person being reviewed. They are something managers feel they have to do, not something they see as a tool to improve the performance of their group.

    During this presentation we will:


    • Expose the common myths about the annual review.
    • Discover why most review systems are the cause for unfair pay practices.
    • Demonstrate how most systems are the root cause for poor team and business performance.
    • Review a case study where the annual review was abolished and what was done instead.
