If you already have a 360 degree mulirater evaluation process in place in your organisation, that’s great! You would just have to reformat it to suit your remote employees.

If you don’t have one, you should work towards getting one soon. While the good ol’ one-on-one review process still works, present surveys show that a 360 degree mulirater evaluation process gives way more valuable insight and understanding about an employee, than what the older methods can ever give.

Why do you need a 360 degree feedback process in place?

  1. To understand and gauge the performance matrices of present and future leaders
  2. To collate fair amount of data for performance appraisals, not just from the manager who can give only one perspective, but from all others who work with the employee
  3. To understand better, the strong and weak points of every employee

Things to keep in mind when you are implementing a 360 degree feedback process:

  1. Have a communication strategy in place

When employees are working remotely, communication can become scarce. It’s important that you create a communication strategy and make sure that all the employees are interacting with you and amongst each other as often as possible. In fact, encourage them to have interactions with other teams as well. That way, whenever it’s time for feedback, you will have inputs coming in for every employee, from different directions.

  1. It’s essential to have a 360 degree multirater tool

Having a 360 degree feedback software will make it very easy for you to implement a 360 degree feedback process in your organisation. Since they are designed to be used by stakeholders from inside and outside the company, they are very easy to understand and use. The remote employees would not require much training, yet every stakeholder will be able to fill in their feedback for an employee.

Remote employees should not just receive feedback from their managers but also from other stakeholders with whom he or she has been working, through a 360-degree review. Most 360 degree multirater tools provide an option for anonymous feedback where co-workers, subordinates, customers, vendors and every other person related to the work field can submit a review without having to worry about their identity getting disclosed. This can help the remote employees gauge the contribution they are making to the organisation and where they are falling short. This process should also include self-evaluation.
