No one likes the annual performance review process. You don’t like it and chances are your boss certainly does not like it. Performance reviews involve difficult conversations, forced rankings, and additional pay or none. Despite it all, performance reviews must be done and there are a lot of ways to make a difficult process a productive and helpful one – both for you and your boss.
Follow these tips to help make the best of a difficult business process and to position yourself for a pay increase and a strong start to the next year.
