What’s your first thought when you think of annual employee performance reviews? For many, it’s a time of the year in which you must remember all of your and your teams’ professional development and accomplishments that happened throughout the year, and a time to dedicate several hours to writing performance reports and filling out paperwork. What if we told you that soon you’ll have a more efficient — and hopefully more enjoyable — process to follow? The new Carolina Talent Performance tool will make administrative tasks easier to handle, keep trainings linked to development plans, and provide an opportunity for managers and employees to have meaningful performance conversations more often than once a year.
