Grades. Imagine if you got a grade at work, at the end of the year, depending on your performance during that year, a number or a letter, that would define your future work.
Imagine if your manager gave you a grade, a number or a letter, after each project you finished throughout the year.
Imagine if you had 2 weeks, twice per year, when you were tested on all aspects of your work, sitting tests every day those two weeks. These tests would further define your future work.
How would these routines effect your general well-being?
Would you feel at ease?
