Finally! A real solution for the performance appraisal system
Talent Management
Editor's note: Aubrey Daniels is a keynote speaker THE Performance Improvement Conference 2014 at The Westin in Indianapolis, April 11-16, 2014. Aubrey Daniels, a thought leader and internationally recognized expert on management, leadership, safety and workplace issues, is considered an authority on human behavior in the workplace. As founder of Aubrey Daniels International, he and his staff help organizations employ the timeless principles of behavioral science to re-energize the workplace, optimize performance and achieve lasting results.

"When is nothing better than something? Could it be the Performance Appraisal?," Aubrey Daniels writes. "In working with hundreds of organizations over the past 40 years, I have never been in one where the performance appraisal system, or should I use the more politically correct performance management system, was not a problem. Never have I seen one that was used as intended, effective or liked by management and other employees."
