Performance reviews need an upgrade. Here’s a quick rundown of how you can do just that!

Customization

Tailor your performance review system to the needs of your company. Don’t just get rid of your reviews because you know other companies have!

Timing

Hold them once every six months or every quarter, and wait a few weeks before holding any corresponding salary talks. The emphasis should be on progress, not judgement.

Balance

Make review cycles balanced by having peers, managers, and employees review each other. If a single person writes the review, have a supervisor evaluate it before submission.

Data

Organize your data beforehand. Using a review tool to collate the relevant information in one place will help to make objective decisions further down the line.

Transparency

Be clear with your employees about the structure and purpose of your performance review cycles. Make sure they have realistic expectations and plenty of time to prepare for review talks.

Development

During review talks, use your observations to focus on development goals and OKRs: don't just talk about the past.

Sensitivity

Be sensitive to people’s reactions to reviews. Give them space to process information whether the review relates to development or salary.

Feedback culture

Support your review cycles with a broader culture of continuous feedback and learning.
