Managers face following challenges in providing accurate, timely, and effective feedback to employees:
1. Fear of discrimination charges
2. Lack of time to complete feedback - lot of paperwork
3. Dependence on subordinates to get accurate reporting on employee's performance
4. Apprehension of spoiling personal image
The challenge of fear of discrimination charge can be overcome by following company guidelines on feedback meticulously and thoroughly so that employees do not have grounds for discrimination charges.
The challenge of not having enough time for timely and accurate feedback can be met by managing the available time effectively and streamlining the feedback procedure so that feedback is done in timely and effective manner.
