Conducting Peer Reviews

Employee evaluation can be conducted through a variety of means, including employee appraisals, manager to employee, HR to employee and peer to peer reviews. These are internal procedures that companies carry out in order to obtain a clear view of their employee’s progress and success within the company. It is a process that allows managers to highlight the strengths and weaknesses within the department, as well as red flag any pertaining issues amongst their employees.
