How Managers Conduct Staff Performance Reviews

If you want a workforce that is driven and productive, you need to shower them with constructive criticism and empower them with the knowledge that can help them get past their shortcomings.

Feedback vacuum—the enemy of productivity

Young professionals can experience a feedback vacuum in the professional world—wondering how to improve, if they need to improve, and how they can develop the skills necessary to improve at their firm and in their career.

According to the Harvard Business Review, one of the biggest hurdles a recent graduate faces while entering the workforce is a lack of feedback. This, in turn, increases chances of human/technical error, creating operational inefficiencies down the line.

How reviews and feedback works on a psychological level

At school and university, you know immediately whether you are on the right track or the wrong one—whether your passing and failing. This helps you grow as you are ever aware of the methodologies that ensure success and the ones that cause failure. Consequently, you get curious and now are able to open a dialogue with your teachers in order to improve.

Yet once you enter the workforce, feedback is almost non-existent unless you do something extremely wrong. Being blamed for a negative result after having no one feeding you insights to improve your performance becomes a loop that can make you unproductive and unmotivated.
