"The Performance Review that Decision Associates created not only meets all of our needs but exceeded our expectations. We have been utilizing this format for several years now and have found the review easy to complete for both management and employees. The Performance Review is an interactive process that promotes employee engagement directly related to the primary responsibilities of each position and puts the employee in the driver's seat of their professional growth. This review process has proven to be meaningful to our employees demonstrated by employees talking about their review and the objectives they have set for themselves throughout the year."
