How is your team performing and collaborating? As a manager, you probably have a good idea of the answer to this as a general question – especially if you use a team assessment. However, how is each individual on your performing? What are they like when you – as a manager – aren’t around?
Peer assessments help managers – and employees – understand each individual teammate. They provide insight into their performance, collaboration skills, and general attitude toward the job. These assessments also highlight each teammates strengths and weaknesses.
One example of a peer assessment is the 360 assessment, where teammates receive feedback from their managers as well as peers. This assessment paints a holistic picture of each employee, which is helpful for both managers and the individual being assessed.
