At a minimum, performance appraisals can feel like a menial, bureaucratic job.
Most people know about job evaluation – from the library to the doctor – if you’re lucky enough to stay in a job for a long time. You may be promised a salary review, you may work with targets to achieve, you may be given more responsibilities. You may be prompted to fill in a number of questions or forms, to constantly assess your ability to do your job properly. You may not be good enough, and your boss has picked up on this by telling you to work harder, to achieve more goals, to be more productive. Or you’ve been notified of a delay.
You may be lucky enough to have a job that you enjoy – all you want is to be satisfied with the work you do and the support you provide. But your boss tells you no, this can’t be right, because you need to focus on development.
Sometimes we ask how capitalism has made it this far, how it has gotten so far in the world. We are amazed at how many people continue to benefit from, and thus perpetuate, the evil patriarchy. We shake our heads at the thought of stability, without being seen, by both of them.
But it’s true. How can all these things not happen? In the same way that assimilation, indoctrination and subjectification make their way to state schools, so do they to job evaluation. we are thought the results of these big unconscious institutions at the personal level when we are told to work harder, to learn more, to be better.
By the way of course we can expect a great effort in personal growth, which is something we need to achieve through each relationship and experience, learning a new lesson with each step in the the presence of some Scholars. of course we dedicate ourselves to this responsibility, measuring our own need to achieve the impossible regardless of our situation. of course we are required to delete all of our information; our relationships with our friends, family, loved ones, colleagues; our thoughts; Finally to ourselves, so we can record it on our CV or claim it as a success in the job evaluation.
And we are all victims of performance appraisal. To show our commitment to capitalist principles, we must rise to become an ’emancipated’ neoliberal, capitalist subject, which will propel us to the exploiters, the better, the free, the growth of people by putting our shoe on the head of a colleague. But in our efforts to take care of ourselves, we are eating ours down.
Capitalism and patriarchal power are sometimes harmful. They have crept into every corner of the world and their strong hold represents billions of mental, emotional, physical, micro-interactions of violence. But they didn’t win every fight – far from it. Winning completely finished The ways of capitalism and patriarchy are to win completely finished who cares for them.
Unfortunately, work is a part of life now. Since most of us have schedules, we have few other options. We may try to find jobs that, in some way, give positive results and be productive: artists, teachers, craftsmen, bookstore workers, hospital workers, car mechanics . But it’s hard to escape performance appraisal, this inevitable part of all our working lives. But whatever we do, it can be avoided.
The resistance comes from understanding micro-interaction, and this is the site of our power. Instead of languishing under the rule of capitalism and patriarchy, we can take back power in our own backyard, from the top to our own.down as workers.
What a manager does in a performance review can be used against them. We can spread their message, discuss what was discussed, tell the “goals” that were set, explain all the ways that are said to rise above our colleagues. These processes grow in the area where they are sown. They ask for our privacy to maintain their high status. So, why not be as open as possible? Eliminate, remove their power, deny their legitimacy, throw their dicks. Encourage others to do the same. Build trust, support, harmony, and non-confrontation.
In these small (and important) ways, we create anarchy. We reject the exploitation, consumption, and burdening of capitalism, and we reject patriarchal rule. But we are working towards the success of the independent company. We are creating a product that is beginning to challenge those vast and unknown industries of power. We are building on what the politician Stevphen Shukaitis is talking about relational opposition …
“… create resistance communities that provide support and strength, many connections and love, in all aspects of our lives, so that we can continue and support each other in our what we do before we leave the one we love”
(Anarchism and prostitutionp47).
Perhaps through this, micro-interactions with capitalism and patriarchy may not be as harmful or destructive as labor analysis. Hopefully, they will be a place of opportunity and release.
