For performance appraisal and reviews to create value in the organisation, it is essential that they are done well. The key to a successful performance review is:

  • A clear and shared understanding of the purpose of your organisational performance reviews
  • Competent managers capable of engaging in constructive feedback
  • Making time and planning for the performance review/interview
  • Having the right process
  • Setting the right frequency
  • Defining clear standards of performance and proficiency so the process is fair and consistent
  • Managing expectations and never over-promising and not delivering
  • Evidence and competency-based discussion, objective and not subjective
  • They are not a substitute for everyday feedback and dialogue

Remember that it’s not just about the process, but the quality of the discussion.

360 Degree Feedback

Providing regular and constructive employee feedback is hugely important, especially if done regularly. Amazing results will be seen in terms of employee performance, motivation and engagement, when done effectively and periodically.

360 degree feedback can be hugely powerful and insightful for those organisations ready to embrace this approach. It is particularly suitable for mature organisations with a well-established culture. If you want to truly gauge and appraise an employee’s performance then it’s important to get a wider perspective. This can be achieved through a wider view of their performance, by taking input from a range of people they interact with:

Think Eleven can help you meet your 360 feedback aspirations.

  • Subordinates – people who report to them
  • Peers – people who work with them
  • Manager – the person they report into
  • Themselves – a personal view
  • Customer – someone internal or external

Use SkillStation to create a range of appraisal templates for different roles and hierarchy.
