The annual performance review is frozen in time. It's a relic of the way business used to work and doesn't capitalize on the way business works today. Employees and employers both dread it. Can it be saved?
In The Crowdsourced Performance Review: How to Use the Power of Social Recognition to Transform Employee Performance, Eric Mosley examines how crowdsourcing feedback can fix the employee performance review. Unlike many business books that suggest ditching the performance review entirely, this book re-imagines the performance review system and proposes a new model, adding practices that keep pace with extraordinary changes in business thinking, social technologies, and company culture.
The new model transforms predictable "one-way" review processes into dynamic, collaborative systems that embrace the wisdom of the crowds. Instead of a one-time annual evaluation of performance, managers and employees receive collective feedback and input from everyone in the company.
The Crowdsourced Performance Review shows business and HR leaders how social recognition can provide a new approach to manage and evaluate employee performance. By following these innovative strategies, companies can create higher levels of engagement, energy, even happiness in a company--leading to the ultimate goal of a Positivity Dominated Workplace.
It’s time to address a system that has long surpassed its current structure. It’s time to use a new way to manage performance – through a system that is in tune with today’s global, social, and multi-generational workforce.
