Want Better Feedback from Employees? Try the Review Switcheroo

About the only thing workers hate more than a traditional performance review is the 360-degree review, which asks them to rate their peers and bosses. But how to get actionable feedback that will help set a team up for collective success if not through a review process? According to an INC profile, all teams at software firm Asana Labs are asked to submit one action for their manager to implement as part of the annual review process. The suggestions are collected, and employees then vote on their favorite. (Just one is chosen so it can be quickly implemented.) Note that the staff are also given a look at their boss’s calendar beforehand to get a full sense of their day-to-day work to encourage them to reflect on his or her goals and priorities. Had less than great success with gathering feedback from staff? Give the Review Switcheroo a try.
