Peer Performance Reviews - Reviewed

Peer Performance Reviews - Reviewed | Buiding a better world | Scoop.it
Some companies are doing away with traditional top-down, manager-led performance reviews and relying on the rank-and-file for employee evaluations.

 

The system provides more valuable information about each worker's performance than a review by just one person would, Mr. Garrity says. That's particularly true at Hearsay Social, because it has very few formal managers, most employees work across multiple teams, and leadership changes from project to project.

"We are decentralizing as much decision making as we can, so we also need to decentralize reviews," says Steve Garrity, the chief technology officer.  at Hearsay Social Inc., a San Francisco-based social-media software company with some 90 employees.

 

But the process, which the firm plans to do twice a year, is also time-consuming and complicated, he says, and it may not work as the employee count grows.

But critics argue that crowdsourced feedback may not provide better data. Like online restaurant or product reviews, feedback may gravitate toward positive and negative extremes, says Tracy Maylett, chief executive of DecisionWise.   ...Another potential downside is "rating fatigue" and lower quality information, he adds.

Assessing the "why" of these processes are key.  For example, the goals of peer review may fit the type of work that happens in  team oriented cultures of a certain size.  360 feedback is also best for newer to mid-level managers, open to development.  ~  D

Just think of how productive and beneficial this could be for a small team. After all, no one knows more about a team member better than another member of the team!

Fascinating experiment - hope it works!

The Boss Stops Here: A nonhierarchical workplace may just be a more creative and happier one

The Boss Stops Here: A nonhierarchical workplace may just be a more creative and happier one | Buiding a better world | Scoop.it

In an old-fashioned, top-down work environment, employees get rewards from three main sources. One is pay (the better we do, the more we get). The second is title (the better we do, the higher we ascend). The third is a sense of achievement (recognition for having performed a task admirably). In a bossless environment, the calculus is significantly changed.

 

Achievement is tied to the team as a whole—you can write a particularly nice piece of code, but it won’t mean squat until the whole project is up and running, and for that, you’ll need the assistance of your peers. Individual achievement is obviated and replaced by shared achievement. Friendliness and congeniality start to matter more, ladder-climbing a whole lot less.

 

And herein an important point: Horizontally managed companies work in large part because they tend to attract people who are okay working in a bossless environment and weed out the ones who aren’t.

A nonhierarchical workplace may just be a more creative and happier one. But how would you feel if the whole office voted on whether to hire you—and when to give you a raise?
