A peer review is when someone's performance is evaluated by their lateral or similarly reporting coworkers. One of the templates provided to you in the Zenefits system is set up with questions designed for a peer review, but you can also create your own. Note that in order for someone to be reviewed in a peer review setup, they must have at least one other individual reporting to the same manager. If you haven't set up your company org structure in Zenefits, you'll need to do this first.
In order to set up a peer review, you can ensure the following review setup is utilized.
A manager review in Zenefits is when managers or supervisors have the opportunity to review the performance of their direct reports. Before you get started with the review formatting, you'll want to think about who will be included in the review. Will it be company wide? Or only a few departments or locations?
A 360 degree review is a method of giving someone feedback from everyone around them in the reporting structure, including but not limited to their reporting manager, peers, direct reports, and other coworkers.
Coordinating a 360 degree review in Zenefits does require some preparation before beginning the review process. First, determine the extent of your 360 degree review- will you be including just direct reports, peers, and managers? Or will you be including other coworkers?
Although there is no specific template for 360 degree reviews provided by Zenefits, we encourage you to view some of the other templates to see if they'll work for your use case. Of course, you'll have the option to completely customize your review as well.
Once you've decided on the best framework for your 360 degree review, you can use the setup detailed below to launch the review in Zenefits.
