Performance Reviews

Performance reviews, often called performance appraisals or evaluations, are a systematic HR process that involves assessing and providing feedback on an employee’s job performance. These reviews typically occur at regular intervals, allowing HR to evaluate an individual’s achievements, strengths, and areas needing improvement, aligning their work with organizational goals, and providing constructive feedback for professional growth. Performance reviews also serve as a basis for salary adjustments, promotions, and development plans. Effective performance reviews are crucial for recognizing and retaining top talent, enhancing individual and team productivity, and promoting a culture of continuous improvement within the organization.
