As an employer, how would you know if your team members are contributing without physical ‘line-of-sight’ or how do employees feel towards their own appraisals from their managers?

Ms Yao and team now help clients make this change with as little impact to their human resources and yet to still achieve corporate objectives, using technology and different successful approaches.
