  1. I’ve never understood the theory that a certain percentage must be below expectations. Wouldn’t you have a better company if most or all of your workers were doing well? Performance appraisals are more likely to drive away good performers than bad performers the way they’re set up now. The bad performers often expect a lukewarm review and go back to whatever lukewarm job they’re doing.
