One method you can use to assess employee performance accurately and improve their productivity

by , 09 December 2014
Your employees are your company's biggest asset.

That's why it's important you assess their performance.

If you don't, you won't see if they're meeting their targets. And you won't have the right information to help them improve their productivity.

That's a mistake your company's bottom line may not recover from.

Don't take that risk.

Use this method to assess your employees' performance accurately and improve their productivity.


If you want to assess your employees' performance accurately and improve their productivity, use this method…
 

With a 360 degree performance appraisal, you'll get feedback about your employee's performance from people he works with.
 
This type of appraisal gives you a more accurate view of your employee's performance. It's also more credible because when different people take part, chances are, you won't get a biased view.
 
The people who can give feedback include:
 
  • Your employee himself;
  • You as his manager;
  • Staff who report to your employee;
  • His peers, team members; and
  • Customers or suppliers.

So how does a 360 degree performance appraisal help you improve employee productivity?

 
The truth is a lot of employees dread performance appraisals.
 
They believe having one person assess them isn't fair. This type of thinking can make them not care about the outcome of the appraisal. Or what they need to do after.
 
But, when you involve different people using a 360 degree performance appraisal, they change their view. This is because they believe this appraisal method is more objective and fair.
 
In addition, your employees care what their peers, customers, etc, think about their work performance. And because they believe the appraisal is fair, they welcome the feedback and improve their productivity. So, in the end, everybody wins.
 

How do you get 360 degree feedback?

 
There are three ways to get 360 degree feedback. You can do:
 
  1. One-on-one interviews;
  2. Team discussions; and
  3. Questionnaires.
 
Check out the Practical Guide to Human Resources Management to get a breakdown of what to do for each option.
 
There you have it: Using a 360 degree performance appraisal can help you assess employee performance accurately and improve productivity.
