Choice about Performance Feedback is Powerful! A 2014 Top Product Winner: Skillrater.com

Choice about Performance Feedback is Powerful! A 2014 Top Product Winner: Skillrater.com | Talent and Performance Development | Scoop.it


What It Is:   Skillrater.com is a cloud-based performance-feedback tool that incorporates social networking and collaboration. It is designed to encourage employees, leaders, teams and organizations to collaborate and help each other improve over time. After completing any work activity, an employee can request a rating from a supervisor, peer, client or customer.   ….Skillrater's feedback is provided in the form of one-to-five ratings on day-to-day activities. 




Employees are empowered to take control of their own development and advancement...so their good work gets noticed. 





[Technology]:  Skillrater can also plug in to complement any integrated talent-management suite, such as Oracle Talent Cloud or SuccessFactors, or can be used as a stand-alone solution. It can also be used to help determine a return-on-investment in leadership-development programs and tracking talent data for various HR developmental and organizational initiatives.

Why We Like It: ...the ability to import LinkedIn profiles into the system were...highly valued by our team of judges... [W]e also liked that Skillrater enables employees to request feedback on their own work.


Employees are empowered to take control of their own development and advancement, and your most ambitious employees will want to request ratings often so their good work gets noticed. 


......we especially like how the product easily enables raters to include a positive, reinforcing message into a rating before delivering a critique.

    Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

    This tool can be used to shift the conversation about performance to ***conversation*** about performance, rather than inspection, monitoring, and all that industrial age stuff that continues to plague performance management systems.

    I talked with Louis Carter today about Skillrater, and learned I was one of the first to comment on this new technology last year.   As of this posting, I'm interested in testing this product in an organization ready to update to more modern, less inspection-oriented performance support, focused on appreciation and encouragement, using ratios such as 5 to 1, positive to critique [disclosure.] 
    The 5 to 1 feedback ratio is based on research from the Positive Organizational Scholarship folks including the Univ. of Michigan Ross Business School.  A video describing how Skillrater works is here.   Lou's press release about Skillrater winning the 2014 award is here.
    If you'd like to have a conversation about trying out SkillRater with the perspective of a seasoned, Whole System Transformation (WST) and organization development consultant/coach like me, contact me here.  Thanks!   ~  Deb Nystrom, REVELN.com
