What’s the best way to manage employee reviews for your team? Should you use an objective, numerical rating system or stick with a more subjective process? Join us today as your hosts Shannon Jean and Dave Hamilton discuss ways to make reviews a productive and positive experience for employees and employers.

After a message from our sponsor, Streak, then it’s time for listener questions where Kevin tells us that our pie-in-the-sky optimism isn’t working for him. We get down to Earth and offer Kevin some action tips to help him get out from being stuck working for someone else. It’s hard work, but we know you can do it, Kevin!

If you have a question for Dave or Shannon, contact us at feedback@businessshow.co!
