How to enable 360 degree PMS Review in uKnowva HRMS

Here is a step-by-step guide on the 360 degree PMS Review Module


What is a '360 degree PMS Review Module' ?


The fundamental concept driving the 360 degree PMS Review is to streamline the performance evaluation process, particularly in large organizations where reporting managers often face time constraints due to various responsibilities. With this system, managers can initiate the evaluation without waiting for the employee's self-rating, enabling a parallel rating system. This not only saves time but also ensures a comprehensive assessment by leveraging both the employee's self-perception and the manager's observations. Thus, the 360-degree PMS Review facilitates a more efficient and insightful evaluation process, enhancing organizational productivity and promoting a culture of continuous feedback and improvement.


Why do I need it?


The need for the 360 degree PMS Review arises from the challenges faced in large organizations, where reporting managers are often burdened with multiple responsibilities and time constraints. In such contexts, waiting for employees to self-rate before managers can evaluate them can lead to delays and inefficiencies in the performance appraisal process. By enabling a parallel rating system, this module addresses these challenges, allowing managers to initiate evaluations without delay. This not only saves time but also ensures a comprehensive assessment by integrating both the employee's self-assessment and the manager's evaluation. Ultimately, the 360-degree PMS Review enhances the efficiency of performance evaluations, promotes timely feedback, and facilitates a more holistic understanding of employee performance, contributing to organizational effectiveness and employee development.
