According to experts, consistently evaluating the behavior and performance of the employees is one of the most vital ways for businesses to succeed and flourish. According to Wes Houston of Grapevine Evaluations (www.grapevineevaluations.com), "In today's business world, the importance and relevance of conducting regular employee performance evaluations is recognized and appreciated by many companies who consider their employees one of their principal assets. Performance reviews not only serve as a development tool, but also foster healthy professional relationships between the employees and employer. These help to set goals and also improve the quality of work and thus overall performance within the organization."
Houston explains how employee evaluation forms can benefit a company. "The entire performance evaluation process is made up of goal setting, measuring of performance, feedback on job performance and the employee's progress to make sure the individual and company as a whole succeeds. With a quality evaluation process in place, employees can view how their job and contributions to the organization fit into the big picture." To that end, Grapevine Evaluations has introduced a 360 Feedback comprehensive Employee Evaluation tool used on the Internet for a simple interface and built with the HR user in mind.
"The 360 degree feedback system provides an excellent tool to the employees, which helps them to develop efficacy in their existing roles. However, keeping the survey anonymous and confidential is very important as to get an open and honest feedback from the employees. This kind of feedback helps the employees to understand how their colleagues and subordinates perceive them. And in turn, the employees cultivate behaviors and skills which help them to perform in a better way within their given responsibilities," says Houston.
Houston explains the tool, saying, "This exclusive web-based 360 degree feedback tool means there is no expensive software to download and install. A company won't need to upgrade their computer systems or purchase additional hard drive storage. Yet the company's information remains secure, private, and confidential." Houston goes on to explain that asking the right questions is half the battle. "A business can make their 360 degree employee evaluations count with the right questions. They can choose from a vast library of questions for instant, ready-made surveys, or, customize their own to ensure they get the information their company needs. They can choose from one of the preset evaluation templates, group questions together by competency and rating or easily customize evaluation questions."
