Do Performance Reviews Really Matter?

Performance reviews incite fear in many employees because they remind us of childhood report cards, reducing us to a series of figures and statistics. TRC Staffing Services, Inc. explores the role that performance reviews play in the workplace.

    NORCROSS, GA, April 23, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Few things inspire as much apprehension in the workplace as a looming performance review. No matter how diligent and competent we may be, most of us are still at least somewhat nervous as we enter our annual or semi-annual review. We desire to not only meet but exceed the expectations that our employers place on us because these benchmarks typically determine who will receive raises, promotions, or even whether or not we will remain employed with that business.

Atlanta staffing agency professionals at TRC Staffing Services, Inc. explain that this fear response could be due to memories of our childhood report cards. Performance reviews are truly the adult equivalent, packaging our long hours of hard work into neat figures and statistics that define who we are within a company.

Performance reviews do not need to be feared events, however. Not only are they limited in their scope, research has pointed out that they are often ineffective if not handled appropriately. Atlanta employment agency specialists suggest looking at a review as an opportunity to receive constructive criticism, allowing you to strengthen your areas of weakness. To keep reviews in perspective, remember that receiving a couple points of negative feedback is normal in many jobs.

Hearing that you need to improve in a particular area provides a chance to open up dialogue with your supervisor. "Display your dedication by working with your employer to create actionable short-term goals," says Tom Bodeep, Senior Vice President of Atlanta employment agency TRC Staffing Services, Inc. "This not only reaffirms your commitment to your job, it shows that you can problem solve."
