mPerf reimagines the performance review

Current workforce evaluation tools, such as interviews, cognitive assessments, and questionnaires, can be helpful in assessing job performance, but do not always accurately reflect how an individual is performing. In addition, these traditional tools can mean more paperwork, bias, and missing indicators of performance. Mobile sensors are already being successfully used to improve health and wellness. Can they also be used to monitor and improve our job performance?
