In order to really gauge how an employee is performing, you need to poke and prod indirect managers, team leads, peers, and even employees from other departments.
Multiple viewpoints allow you to get a better understanding of an employee’s performance.
And if those numbers still don’t convince you, consider these advantages of crowdsourced feedback during employee evaluation.
Crowdsourced reviews come from multiple people. As such, you’re getting multiple perspectives.
When these reviews are meshed together, a bigger, more comprehensive picture of the employee’s performance is put together for evaluation.
Employees gain valuable insight into their strengths and weaknesses from their colleagues because they have daily interactions with them.
And this makes the process of improvement public. Employees must work harder to get better so they don’t let their peers down.
Management can recognize employees for their big accomplishments. But coworkers see the small successes.
Data shows that only a third of workers received recognition the last time they went the extra mile at work. Making matters worse, just a quarter feel highly valued.
Providing recognition for excellent work is one of the best things an organization can do to maintain employee engagement.
Management only sees part of the process. Luckily, information from peers and other leaders gives them this opportunity. The ability to send requests at any time to get timely feedback plays a key role in building a truly effective performance review process.
