Why do employees overwhelmingly dread their annual performance review with the boss?

Quite often, this discussion is tied to the decision of whether an employee will receive a pay raise. What’s more, many of the points a manager makes about an employee can feel personal, even subjective, and not reflective of his or her true performance over a year’s time.

It’s up to managers to make the dialogue in the annual performance review as employee-friendly as possible, even though the odds are already stacked against both manager and employee. A different kind of process altogether can benefit employees and empower managers to feel more successful in appraising employee performance.
