The Right Way to Talk to Employees
Performance reviews – the two words that immediately emit groans, eye-rolls and that pit-in-the-stomach feeling. But the best offices will conduct these on an annual basis.
This is a great time to look back at past performance and develop a plan for future, personal growth for the employee. However, many times these meetings are used to address unwanted behavior that may have occurred several weeks or months ago. The reality is that unwanted behavior should be corrected immediately and should not wait for an annual or pre-scheduled meeting.
