    Series 3: Are Annual Performance Reviews a Thing of the Past?

    Series 3: Are Annual Performance Reviews a Thing of the Past?

    Our next episode of HR Insights – The Podcast is out now! Stuart Elliott chats to Roly Walter, Founder of Appraisd, an employee performance management system that is unique in aiming to help managers get the best from their team members. 
    Appraisd began in Roly’s garden shed where he combined his experience working as an HR and business analyst with his interest in coding. He began with the kernel of an idea: an employee-first approach to performance and development; something that employees would find genuinely useful, something HR would be proud of implementing and something managers would find a blessed relief from the tired and out-dated appraisal forms they were used to. Since then the company has grown substantially.  
    In this episode Stuart and Roly question whether the annual performance review process is outdated, the pain points around them and Roly shares various ideas around how career conversations could be structured instead.

Good game Elliot Scott

Episode 1 done. A great listen and some great powerful words of wisdom from Sacha. Look forward to the rest of the episodes.

Also from the intro where Stuart talks about talent and retention, would be great to hear later on in 2020 if that has played out as predicted and what he/Eliott Scott has observed - anything new to share.
Thanks team.
