Is the annual appraisal dead? asks Flow Training in this newly published white paper.
“The appraisal is dead. Long live the catchup.” This was the title of a recent article in The Guardian newspaper, citing various major employers across the globe choosing to replace annual appraisals with more regular and sometimes less formal ways of discussing an employee’s performance, development, and feedback.
As one third of customers at Flow Hospitality Training are using the Appraisals functionality to plan and keep track of their employee’s development, they have created a substantial paper that could analyse and point out the best practices for conducting regular employee appraisal meetings.
Some solutions to the challenge of conducting successful appraisals:
- Increase the frequency of review meetings
- Link it to values & competencies
- Make the process less formal
- Focus on lifelong learning, not just ticking boxes
- Encourage leaders to listen more & let the team member take the lead
- Ensure the process takes place at all levels of the organisation
- Make the process more transparent and consistent
In this white paper we speak to two leading hospitality people & talent thought leaders about how they manage appraisals and regular reviews, as well as highlighting the approach of businesses in other sectors:
- Marco Reick Director of People and Talent at QOOT
- Hayley Connor Head of People and Learning at Brewhouse & Kitchen
