The conversation emphasizes the importance of clear communication in performance management and offers assistance in developing effective performance rating systems.

New York City’s AI bias law, which requires employers to audit automated employment decision tools for potential bias, has faced challenges in terms of compliance and enforcement.
The law’s narrow scope and lack of awareness among employers contribute to low compliance rates.
Numerical ratings in performance reviews provide clarity and a means of quantifying performance, but they can also be subjective and demotivating.
Alternative approaches to performance reviews that focus on feedback and improvement without assigning numerical scores may be more effective.
Clear communication and evaluation of performance rating systems are crucial for successful performance management.
