As a participant, you will be asked questions about your development, because research shows sharing your feelings and ideas greatly affects perceived fairness and motivates improved performance. Your self review should be completed before the self review deadline. This deadline will be listed in the 'Overview' tab of the review cycle. You can click on the link from your kick-off email to go directly to your self review. If you are already in app or aren't in your email, you can follow the steps below. Once your self review has been submitted, you manager can begin working on their manager review of you and your peers (if already nominated and accepted) can start writing their peer reviews of you.
If you are not a participant in a review cycle, you will not be asked to complete a self review.
We include a self review for fairness because research shows active participation has a large effect on perceived fairness and motivation to improve, specifically for the sake of having one’s voice heard (sharing their feelings and ideas) rather than for the purpose of influencing the end result.
