The Truth About Job Performance Appraisals

Peter Cappelli, Director of the Center for Human Resources at the Wharton School, has spent decades studying the complicated dynamics of employment. In a post-recession world, his research is more timely than ever as companies large and small struggle to adapt to a new normal that relies on fewer employees handling a larger, shifting workload. One practice that has persisted in this changing business landscape is the ubiquitous performance evaluation, which Cappelli describes as universally despised by both supervisors and subordinates.

In a recent segment on the Knowledge@Wharton show on Wharton Business Radio on SiriusXM, Capelli discusses the latest research on performance appraisals, their effectiveness (or ineffectiveness) in measuring employee productivity and why he believes companies are better off without them.
