Performance Review is one of the most frequently used managers' and HR's approaches to evaluating employee work performance and employee skills. Also known as, "performance appraisal" or "performance evaluation" it has a focus on employee's results and achievements, identifies strengths and weaknesses, provides feedback, and creates a background for setting goals for future performance.
In the past, companies used formal annual performance reviews for all employees; however, nowadays more and more companies understand the value of ongoing communication. You can provide regular performance feedback and, of course, goals adjustment, quarterly, monthly or even weekly with Heartpace one-on-one Talks.

Data from the previous review
It is good to consider the data from the previous performance appraisal - what were the performance goals and personal development objectives, last appraisal results, and summary. This historical perspective might help to measure employee’s progress and see what has changed during the time.
Reliable data about the employee current performance
When the feedback is based on facts and figures, it is much easier for the employee to accept and discuss both positive part and critique, unlike the feedback based only on the manager's perception or opinions.
