UCLA News Week: Kill the performance review

 
Anderson School professor Samuel Culbert has a fresh idea for that hoary workplace institution: the performance review. Abandon them, he says in studio for the latest edition of UCLA News Week.
 
"First, they're fraudulent, dishonest and pretentious," says Culbert, professor of human resources and organizational behavior at the UCLA Anderson School of Management. "And second, they reflect bad, corrupt management."
 
Culbert's new book is "Get Rid of the Performance Review: How Companies Can Stop Intimidating, Start Managing — and Focus on What Really Matters."
 
Also in this week's videocast: how coffee helps protect us against diabetes, and author Garin Hovannisian details his family’s relationship with the history of Armenia and the diaspora of the Armenian people.
