In recent consulting calls, Job Scorecards (sometimes referred to as employee scorecards) have been a hot topic. Many companies are looking for a way to provide more constant and balanced feedback and coaching to employees, instead of just an annual review. The scorecard approach allows company managers to achieve their strategic objectives.
The truth is, traditional annual performance reviews can be riddled with anxiety. Many times employees perceive a connection to salary or a raise, which is stressful for everyone. The true value of a performance review - an opportunity for development and coaching - is often missed. The role and goal clarity that the employee scorecard provides enables managers to be more involved in employee performance.
