I found this National Public Radio story interesting in light of my last two posts on performance feedback systems.

“Companies Rethink Annual Performance Reviews,” gives examples of companies that have switched to providing feedback on a continuous basis, using a coaching-oriented process.  It refers to the Rypple application I mentioned in this post.

From the NPR story:

“The annual performance review is getting reviewed itself, and has received low marks. Employees say feedback from the review is too little and comes too late to be effective. Now companies are beginning to rethink how they give feedback”
