Forced Ranking

What is Forced Ranking?

Forced ranking is a method to measure and rank the employees’ performance by comparing them with each other instead of measuring their performance based on common standards. The measurement is done by grouping the employees into 3-5 categories, such as the best workers, the worst workers, and a few more that fall between these two categories. Forced ranking is considered to be a controversial measure, as it gives space for favoritism and other unfair practices.
