TaskUs’ Jaspar Weir on the power of annual reviews

According to TaskUs’ CEO and President Jaspar Weir, some of the biggest complaints in corporate culture are employee performance reviews and appraisals.

On top of that, trying to maintain a rigorous workload and a highly active social life can be dangerous.

At TaskUs, “we think ‘work hard, have fun’ is a better way of putting it.”
