Are you tired of your current performance evaluation system, but aren’t sure what to do about it? Alpha Omega Associates has just what you need to finally give those dreadful evaluations the boot!
It’s that time of the year again…the annual performance appraisal. Suddenly employees seem more anxious and tense, and managers are dreading “the talk” with their employees about their performance. Many organizations use the traditional method of evaluating employee performance in which a supervisor rates their subordinate on a number of competencies or skills. Yet, research indicates a high level of dissatisfaction with these methods, with one study finding that 61% of employees stating that their supervisor lacks the ability to properly assess their subordinates (Kinicki & Fugage, 2012).
The fact that so many organizations are using this method of appraising their employees, regardless of the high levels of dissatisfaction, is disheartening; however, 360 degree feedback provides a more advanced and accurate measure of the employee’s true performance. 360 degree feedback gathers information from multiple sources (supervisors, peers, subordinates, and self-ratings) with less error to capture a more comprehensive view of the employee’s true performance.
That’s where 360 degree feedback and Alpha Omega Associates comes in. Not only can we construct a tool that is superior to the unsatisfactory traditional performance evaluation methods, we are here to help you use that information to improve performance and productivity. The information we gather is less biased and captures a more accurate picture of the employee’s true performance, because it provides insight from multiple viewpoints including supervisor, self, peers, and subordinates (Cascio & Aguinis, 2011). Once we gather that information, we will conduct a comprehensive analysis of the feedback, identify areas for improvement, and provide training and coaching to develop your employees into exceptional performers.
