Bi-annual self-assessment + performance reviews
These scheduled review moments provide individuals with the opportunity to reflect personally on their own performance, followed by feedback from their manager on the same criteria.
This is an opportunity for managers and their team members to gain clarity and alignment on what they each see as important for success in their role, and then how they feel they’re performing against what they’ve both previously agreed upon.
This is a great opportunity for managers – especially those new to this role – to receive insights into how they’re performing and if there are opportunities for improvement.
Because people are often afraid of providing feedback to their manager, this is a crucial opportunity for productive feedback to be shared so managers and teams can progress together.
While this is not a scheduled moment, it is still a crucial element of DoorDash’s people enablement strategy. This provides an opportunity for real-time feedback between team members, which people can engage with at any time to support development.
What does this look like in real life?
Within their first review cycle, DoorDash teams shared over 10,000 pieces of feedback and achieved an astounding 85% adoption rate. At the same time, the People Operations team gained valuable and actionable insights in half the time it used to take them with Google Docs.
