In this article:



Use the Goal Review Booster to help managers and employees share an understanding of the employee's progress on their goal(s) at a glance.

The Goal Review Booster encourages regular dialogue around the employee's goal and makes it easy for both parties to keep track of goal progression, as well as to keep goals top of mind throughout the year.
