We built 7Geese Reviews after seeing increased employee demand to have a more formal process to understand and reflect on their historic performance, what growth opportunities are available to them and how these map to their future career path.
7Geese Reviews overcomes many of the shortcomings associated with traditional performance reviews and are an integral part of Continuous Performance Management.
Many people team leaders want to integrate a 360 feedback for each employee, as part of their overall Review process.
- 7Geese Reviews are used by our most successful customers as a way for employees to reflect on their previous performance and create action plans with their manager around their future career development and growth. The process for launching a Review is often multi-faceted and requires buy-in from multiple stakeholders.
- 7Geese 360s (Request feedback for others) are used as a way to understand an employee's more immediate development and coaching needs. They can be initiated very easily by both managers and admins and require a far lighter set up process compared to a Review.
Best Practice Processes - 360s and Reviews
There are two best practice processes we advise people leaders and admins to follow if wanting to include 360s as part of a Review process:
- Run 360 feedback surveys for all employees a few months before an annual Review
- 360 shared reports with employees will show up in the Review only if the report is shared within the Review time frame chosen when launching the review
Run bi-annual or quarterly 360 feedback surveys for employees, with one annual Review per employee used as an overall reflection piece. This strategy is used by leading companies such as Google.
