Leveraging Microsoft Teams for Employee Performance Reviews

The performance review process is an essential part of any company's HR strategy. It allows for managers to assess the performance of their employees, identify areas for improvement, and set goals for the future.

That's why many companies are now turning to Microsoft Teams, within the Office 365 suite, to help streamline the process and get better results.

Managers can provide real-time feedback to employees, and employees can provide real-time feedback to managers, making the process more efficient and effective.

Most importantly, feedback becomes part of the everyday workflow.
