Employee Performance Appraisal Trends
The Society for Human Resource Management reports that companies are increasingly doing away with appraisals. At a first glance, it may seem like the time to get rid of your company’s employee appraisal form. However, this trend is a niche movement that does not reflect the general practice.
On further investigation, SHRM shares that 91% of employers conducted performance appraisals in 2018. Compare this to 96% in the previous year. There is also a segment of performance appraisals that are growing. In 2016, 42% of companies had quarterly informal performance check-ins. In 2017, this number grew to 50%.
