9-Bin Calibration

Bucket employees into a 3x3 grid

Bucket groups of employees evenly into 3 bins (think "top", "middle", "bottom"), then split those into 3 bins each to arrive at 9 bins of employees. Then assign ratings to the bins. Note: Some teams choose different "axes" for the bins ー e.g. primary bins representing performance, and then the secondary bins representing potential.
