    It seems like every day, a new company announces its plan to get rid of the performance review. Rightfully so—according to CEB, a company of 10,000 employees spends an average of 200 manager hours and $35 million annually on this process, which yields little to no return.

    In order to create a high-performance culture, you will need a more holistic framework that is designed to allow employees to own their development, creating an impact on your company culture and bottom line. Incorporating the practices of continuous feedback and employee development resources are vital staples in creating a performance management process that will help engage and retain employees.

    Organizations that manage a shift-based (and hourly) workforce must contend with complex scheduling rules including labor laws and labor agreements.
