Performance reviews: more than a one-on-one conversation

Performance is not just about one team member, but about how they contribute to the team’s success. 

To make sure this is taken into account, a manager’s feedback won’t be enough during an employee appraisal. 

We created our 360 feedback tool with just that in mind: select the coworkers you have in mind and let them complete their assessment so you can fairly assess your team members.

Performance review software FAQs

Who needs performance management software?


Every business needs performance management software if they want to keep their team engaged and growing. 

But what does that mean exactly? Whether you’re a manager, a founder, a CEO, operations manager or else, you know performance reviews are crucial. 

However, what you may not know is how performance management software might help you streamline the process – this is exactly what we aim to do here at Charlie.

How do you create an effective performance review system?


When you sit down to create your company’s performance review system, start by defining the frequency of your organisation’s performance review cycle. Should it be monthly, quarterly, or yearly?

Then, find a review template that aligns with your company’s core values and mission statement. Finally, just set the system in motion.

CharlieHR's performance appraisal software streamlines and automatically kicks off the appraisal process, sending out questions and reminders to both managers and the people on your team. As part of this workflow, managers give feedback, then conversations and check-ins are scheduled, and a company culture of communication, employee engagement, collaboration, and honest, constructive feedback is established. 

The system takes care of sending notifications to the relevant people, so the performance review process runs as smoothly as possible.

How do you choose a performance management software?


Picking a performance management software can be difficult when you’re not sure whether it’s going to be too much too soon. 

As a small business, for example, it’s better to start small and implement the process slowly but surely – what you want to look for is a tool that allows you to streamline your review process, save time and is easy to use. 

Make sure they have access to the right platform that can make life easier both for you and them.
