Performance Reviews Go Digital

Here is an article explaining the new, free system “Rypple”.  Rypple basically is a free tool that allows employees to pick other trusted, valued colleagues to give them performance feedback.

The article claims that the benefits are that this can do away with the uncomfortable, time consuming annual performance review, while giving the younger “Net Generation” the constant feedback that they thrive on.

As a member of the “Net Generation”, who needs constant feedback to thwart my unwarranted daily fear of getting fired-this sounds too good to be true. 

1)    Rypple is free-so why not?

2)    The responses are anonymous.  I think that that is great-because you will get more honest feedback.
