Let’s be honest: The performance review has gotten a bad rap. Not only do employees dread the process, managers often feel the time can simply be better spent doing something else. Unfortunately, while the performance review process is intended to be helpful to everyone, several companies are simply doing away with them.
How cool would it be if every time an employee goal was met, an enormous cry of “GOOOAAALLL!” erupted through the office? Unfortunately, our offices aren’t stadiums, and not all goals are winners.

Many employees dread their annual performance review, and most managers view these reports as just another task on their to-do list.
Promotions are an upgrade for everyone in your organization—when done right. They’re excellent employee encouragement, the kind that really makes people stick around.

I am the first human resources professional White Construction Group (WCG) has hired. When I started, there was no formal onboarding program in place. The company would simply show employees to their desks, tell them who to ask if they had questions, and wish them the best of luck.
Employee Net Promoter Score (eNPS) is a metric used by companies to gauge employee satisfaction with their employment experience. The metric is derived from Net Promoter Score, which companies use to calculate customer satisfaction with their product or service. In HR’s case, employees are considered the customers.
Corporate ladders are out; career lattices are in. This is probably not news to you—Cathy Benko, Vice Chairman and Managing Principal at Deloitte, popularized the idea in her 2010 book, The Corporate Lattice: Achieving High Performance In the Changing World of Work.
To attract top talent, you need to provide a great candidate experience and leave a positive impression at every touchpoint during the recruitment process. Providing a quality candidate experience is directly related to recruitment and bottom line success. But how do you know if you’re delivering a good experience? Or, perhaps more importantly, how do you know if you need to review and improve it?
