SURVEY SAYS: For many companies, this is the time of year for performance appraisals. Last week, I asked NewsDash readers, “Do you think employers should adjust expectations for employees to reach goals because of the pandemic?” And, “How do you think the pandemic has affected performance generally?” More than six in 10 responding readers said employers should reduce expectations for some goals, keep expectations the same for some, or increase expectations for some goals. The majority of respondents reported that they think the pandemic has hurt the performance of some employees and improved the performance of others. A few of the readers who left comments said considerations of goals and expectations should be determined on a case-by-case basis. A couple of respondents shared how their own performance has been affected.
