Performance appraisal and GE

I do not quite like the method of firing people who are in the last 10% slot in the company. I do agree that they do not fit there and they probably have other jobs that suite them but this is not always true. Sometimes it could happen that after all the bad ones are gone you will be firing the good ones who come in the slot. This will make the environment very competitive.This can lead to office politics and probably be a disaster for team work.

I really want to see if there is a good team in GE or not. And if there is how do they manage any competition which could exist.

  1. Yes Abhi,

    I agree with you….having such a competitive environment can cause tense relationships between employees. Team work will be affected since employees will always try to shine instead of working as an effective team. And maybe people that are being fired are just not motivated enough, but they are actually really good employees. I wouldn’t like to work in an environment that i feel Im being evaluate all the time….that could make me under perform just because the pressure exists.
