Performance reviews are a hassle for everyone involved. Supervisors have to deal with an onslaught of paperwork and meetings, but employees who only get assessments once or twice a year can often feel as if they are working in a vacuum.
A startup called Impraise wants to change the way workplaces approach performance reviews. Part of Y Combinator’s latest batch, Impraise is an app that lets co-workers share feedback as often as needed.
Steffen Maier says that he and Impraise’s other co-founders, Bas Kohnke, Filipe Dobreira, and Arnaud Camus, were inspired to create Impraise because of the lack of feedback they received at their previous jobs.
