The Tide Has Turned

Employees hate receiving them. Managers hate giving them. HR is fed up of policing them. Appraisals are a classic representation the mechanical, outdated management model. And after decades of failed iterations and a wealth of behavioural science recommending they're abandoned, organisations are now lining up to leave them behind.

Microsoft, Dell, Accenture, New York Life, Deloitte, GE, Adobe, Levi Strauss, Gap, Intel, Medtronic and Merck to name a few.

We’re going to get rid of [performance appraisals]. Not 100 percent, but we’re going to get rid of probably 90 percent of what we did in the past. It’s not what we need... The process is too heavy, too costly for the outcome. And the outcome is not great. My philosophy has always been very simple: You need to be relevant to your clients, not the other way around. It’s the same thing with your people. You need to be relevant to them.
