A thought about Annual Performance Reviews

My doubts about APRs began when someone I had not seen for two years, who lived and worked on a different continent than I did, wrote my APR. He wasn't my supervisor, nor was I told that he would write the thing.

I suspect that one thing the APRs achieve is to train people over the years to improve the appearance of their APRs.

I hated writing the things, and disagree with the practice on principle. I can not imagine that there has ever been a valid study that indicated that they improved organizational performance.
