Should evaluation interviews be stopped?

Microsoft, General Electric, Accenture… In recent years, these companies have stopped annual appraisal interviews. Generalized in France in the 90s after being imported from the United States, this “one to one” meeting, manager and employee, supposed to draw up a general assessment of the past year, evaluate the performance of the employee and projecting it onto the coming year, is increasingly criticized.

The main grievances? Its time-consuming nature, a format deemed unsuitable in the face of changes in the world of work, the project mode providing employees with several managers, an outdated hierarchical configuration… “It is true that being judged in one hour each year, on multiple subjects, generates stress for the employee”, analyzes David Guillocheau, CEO of ZestMeUp, an HR solution specializing in employee engagement and experience.
