I recently read an article by the Impact Achievement Group who just came out with a study  that talks about the disconnect between upper levels of management and the employees who are being reviewed.

What they found doesn’t seem to be all that ground breaking, but it provides for a good discussion none the less. 62% of executives and vice presidents felt  performance reviews reflect results. However 43% which consists of those who are being reviewed and/or are peers to the ones who are giving the performance review, felt the process was not as effective.

The difference shows a disconnect between upper level management and those being reviewed. The question is what is the right answer to fix this? Do executives get more involved in reviews? Do you have a focus group or survey your employees to see what kind of reviews will truly reflect performance? Or do employees just not like getting reviewed?

If you have an opinion please make a comment…
