Performance is an everyday, continuous activity. What people want to know on an ongoing basis is how they are doing and whether they are progressing in the right direction.
Providing regular feedback on overall performance
The Snapshot enables a manager to provide their people with an overall indication of how they are doing at any time. It can be given at milestone points in a project, when performance changes, when an employee requests it or when the manager simply wants to give feedback. The assessment labels and icons can be customised and managers can give as many snapshots throughout the period as they want. Snapshots are recorded and tracked and provide employees with ongoing feedback on their overall progress which can be further discussed with their manager in the Catch up, in one-on-one meetings or in the annual review.
