Samuel Culbert, a professor at the University of California Anderson School of Management, has written a very interesting op-ed about performance reviews in the New York Times. Culbert believes most performance reviews say more about whether a boss likes a subordinate than they do about performance. He uses this claim to argue against the claim that a non-union environment will lead to a more fair evaluation. Instead of a top down approach, Culbert endorses a collaborative type of review, one currently used by the police department in Madison, Wisconsin. Hopefully, the state’s governor will read this editorial and learn something.
