Performance Reviews Help Create Great Employees
By Phillip M. Perry

You want the most bang for your buck when you invest money in your business. If you buy a computer or truck, for example, you select a top quality machine and maintain it for peak performance.

Don’t you want the same results with your employees? After you hire quality people, you want to make sure they keep working in ways that boost your bottom line.

People, though, are not machines. You can’t oil them or replace their defective parts or upgrade their memories. So just how can you keep them in great shape?

Conduct Honest Reviews
No one likes confrontation. Little wonder, then, that supervisors often soft pedal negative performance reviews.

Focus On Specifics
