What's happening in your ranks?
Employees want more frequent feedback and companies can't afford to wait until year-end reviews to course-correct. One-on-ones offer a scalable way for all employees to get the developmental feedback they need to increase performance.
Ben Horowitz describes the importance of one-on-ones in his popular blog post:
"Absent a well-designed communication architecture, information and ideas will stagnate and your company will degenerate into a bad place to work. While it is quite possible to design a great communication architecture without one-on-one meetings, in most cases one-on-ones provide an excellent mechanism for information and ideas to flow up the organization and should be part of your design."
