Most companies conduct formal, annual, employee performance reviews. Some include salespeople in the process while others do not.
Those who include salespeople in the process argue that all employees should receive this formal feedback.
The counter arguments are that employee annual reviews are generic and do not address sales related topics. Plus, these executives say that salespeople know how they are performing based on quota attainment.
