Leaders spend 8 seconds reading the self appraisals of direct reports

The FT reports that on average for every 7.5 minutes employeers spend on writing self-reflections, bosses spend just 8 seconds reading them.

There is no hope for a generative, collaborative appraisal when the effort is so one-sided.

Did You Know?

66% of HR leaders say performance management is ineffective

The good news? 81% of HR leaders understand this and are making changes. The bad news? It’s not working because 67% of organisations are focusing on reducing the time and effort of performance management

It’s counterproductive because reducing effort actually lowers workforce performance by 16.6%

The lesson? Don’t do less performance management,
Do it differently.
