Performance improvement plans

I have a senior member of staff who we will be working with on performance improvement. Part of his objectives will be to build stronger stakeholder relationships and as a result his success will be based on their feedback. Does anyone have experience of the best way to gather/record qualitative feedback from peers without them being aware of the reason (performance management)? 

  • Hi Leah,

    We have done something similar as a 360 degree feedback exercise, whereby it was 'sold' to all participants as team development, which it can certainly be viewed as. Obviously the main subject (in your case the senior member of staff) should know the reason for the feedback being sought or there is an element of underhandedness (if that's a word!) about it.

    I hope this is helpful,
