See how WorkStory can streamline performance reviews for your team

In today's fast-paced work environment, traditional performance reviews often fail to meet the needs of modern teams. These reviews can be time-consuming, stressful, and disconnected from the daily workflow. Integrating Microsoft Teams with WorkStory changes the game by providing a seamless, continuous feedback system that keeps everyone aligned and engaged.

This post explores how leveraging Microsoft Teams with WorkStory can transform your performance review process, making it more efficient, accurate, and conducive to ongoing improvement.

The Challenge with Traditional Performance Reviews

Traditional performance reviews typically take hundreds of hours to complete—taking up valuable time not only from the HR and Ops teams but also for managers and employees throughout the organization.

Relying on the typical annual review process limits real-time feedback. As such, managers and employees struggle to stay aligned, and crucial development opportunities may be missed.

Moreover, infrequent review conversations can lead to inaccuracies and recency bias, where recent events overshadow an employee's overall performance throughout the year.

This outdated approach results in a lack of actionable insights, making it difficult for organizations to foster continuous improvement and growth. The need for a more dynamic and responsive feedback system is evident.

Introducing WorkStory's Solution

WorkStory addresses these challenges by integrating performance reviews seamlessly with Microsoft Teams. Here's how WorkStory enhances the review process:
