Performance Management Systems

360-Degree Performance Evaluation

Our consultants offer confidential evaluation instruments that can be administered to a full circle of stakeholders who interact with an employee. Our team members can prepare a formal report of the individual’s performance that combines the vertical and horizontal input from managers, peers, subordinates and others within the organization. The report offers individual performance assessment to facilitate meaningful and constructive feedback.

Employee Opinion Surveys

We also offer confidential surveys to assess the attitudes and opinions of the client’s employee population. Our consultants compile survey answers and summarize them in a management report. At the client’s request, we can also serve as a third-party administrator and make recommendations for organizational or workplace changes.

Performance Evaluation Programs

We offer specialized exempt and nonexempt employee performance evaluation programs to document and measure employee performance against evaluation factors considered important to the client. Our performance evaluation instruments can be used by clients, and our consultants can assist in implementing and interpreting evaluation programs.

Upward Appraisals

Our firm offers a client’s employees the opportunity to confidentially evaluate managers’ leadership and supervisory skills. We analyze these evaluations and create a complete assessment of each manager’s performance, skills and leadership style from the perspective of the employees. If requested, our firm can present the appraisals to the managers, along with offering recommended training, mentoring and coaching programs, if appropriate.
