IBM is revamping its employee performance reviews, replacing the traditional annual assessment with a new app called ‘Checkpoint’. This new system will evaluate employees on five key metrics: business results, impact on client success, innovation, personal responsibility to others, and skills. Employees will receive feedback at least quarterly, instead of annually, allowing for a more dynamic response to performance. This move aligns with a wider trend in the tech industry, with companies like Adobe, GE, and Microsoft also ditching annual reviews for more frequent feedback. IBM’s decision follows a year-long internal study and feedback from employees. The new system aims to encourage continuous learning and agility among IBM’s 378,000 employees. ‘Checkpoint’ is part of a broader transformation at IBM, as the company seeks to foster a more digital, nimble and collaborative culture.
