Washington Post :: More U.S. Companies Moving Away FromTraditional Performance Reviews

A Washington Post feature on doing away with traditional performance reviews includes a quote from i4cp: "Nearly 10 percent of Fortune 500 companies have done away with annual ratings, said Cliff Stevenson, a senior research analyst for the Institute for Corporate Productivity, a research network that studies management practices. Adobe and Medtronic were among the earliest large companies to do so, several years ago, followed by companies such as Microsoft and Gap. The number is likely to grow rapidly. “The snowball has started rolling,” Stevenson said. “I would not be surprised to see next year when we do the large survey again that it may jump into the twenties.”
