What is a Performance review?

A performance review is a meeting that assesses how well an employee has fulfilled his or her job objectives, and whether improvements or additional objectives should be set.

Performance reviews typically include a ranking of the employee’s performance, as well as medal or award systems to reward the employee for exceptional work.


Performance reviews typically occur annually or semi-annually, based on the nature of a firm’s operations. Typically, employees will receive their reviews before the annual performance review meeting so they have an opportunity to correct any performance deficiencies before the meeting.
