It’s The Final Countdown

Share Button

My apologies if you now have images of ‘poodle permed’ rockers strutting their stuff and a distinctive fanfare intro going round your head. The Final Countdown I’m referring to is the final week of a managed 360 degree feedback programme and how we work with our clients to get those final completion rates as high as possible.

As a managed 360 degree appraisal programme progresses we give an overall completion rate at the end of each week – we also alert our clients if we think this completion rate is lower than we would expect. We discuss with our clients possible strategies to combat low completion rates and implement the most effective solution.

In the final week, depending on completion rates, it maybe necessary that we 

  • provide a daily update on completion rates
  • highlight recipients who have key feedback missing
  • generate a detailed breakdown of respondent’s incomplete feedback

The final week also brings an extra urgency to reissue login details to respondents that haven’t completed feedback and realise that they have ‘lost’ them.

To get those completion rates as high as possible we provide our clients with facts, figures and equally important our guidance and experience. After all ‘The Final Countdown’ (even without the involvement of spandex) has the potential to be a stressful time without full backing and support.

Make It Easy On Yourself – Bowland Vanilla

Share Button

Bowland Vanilla offers our clients the chance to run a non-branded 360 degree process for any number of recipients, being a fully managed on-line 360 feedback service it takes away the administrative burden from our clients.

Clients pick from a selection of competencies and behaviour questions (we’re happy to look over these if required), provide us with the recipient and respondent details and we do the rest. We send the invites, reminders, monitor the completion rate and let the client know how it’s all going at key stages of the process. When the 360 is over PDF reports are available on the same day that the final feedback is completed.

Feedback from clients has indicated that they have found the Bowland Vanilla process

  • simple
  • stress free
  • effective

So as the Walker Brothers once sang ‘Make it easy on yourself…’
