One reason why we conduct formal performance evaluations twice a year is
that it guarantees our employees one-on-one time with their Managers at
least 2 times per year to discuss their goals, performance, and
development. I feel that great Managers don't need formal sessions like
these to connect with their employees about performance because great
Managers are always doing it whether formally or informally with their
employees, but because so many even well-intentioned Managers often don't
take the time to do this on their own, having formal discussions planned
each year ensures this happens.
