S/PHR Study Questions

Q. Can you define forced distribution?

A. In the forced distribution method (also known as forced ranking), the managers are compelled to force employee performance into a bell-curve system, with a top 10%, next 35%, next 45%, and the bottom 10% (similar to how many public school teachers rank students). In this system, most employees will fall into the middle of the performance spectrum.
