What are Performance Reviews?

Performance reviews are formal opportunities for feedback between a business/managers and their staff. They're used to track staff performance over a longer period of time, and can help businesses make decisions when promoting or letting staff go.

With Workforce's Performance Review feature, you can store insights and notes against every employee. Create any number of customisable review templates which can be manually sent ad-hoc, or automatically when staff meet a milestone in the business.
