Community Sports Trust invites volunteers to feedback on staff performance

20th Jul 2012

When the Community Sports Trust invited us to support the Derbyshire Village Games staff with a 360 degree feedback process, we saw an exciting opportunity to engage community volunteers in what is traditionally the remit of line managers, colleagues and statutory partners.  
 
7 officers took part in a 360 degree review involving a range of people from local authorities to schools and community volunteers and each has received a comprehensive personal report indicating their strengths and areas for improvement along with recommendations for professional development.
 
It is anticipated that this will provide very useful information for each of the officers as part of their career development in sport, as well as gaining vital feedback and input from volunteers and partners on the performance of individuals delivering the project.

 

The confidential process involved reviewers rating the individuals against 16 behaviour statements aligned to the National Occupational Standards for Sport and Active Leisure. The questionnaire was undertaken online and responses were all anonymous. Helen Brewis, one of our leading Occupational Psychologists analysed the results and provided a summary report with personal recommendations.
 
Hayley Lever, Chief Officer said:
"Hi Helen/Andrea,
I wanted to say a big thank you for all your work on the 360 degree reviews. They are great pieces of work, and will be so valuable to us in supporting the staff team in their personal development.”

 

Helen Brewis said:
"Undertaking a 360 degree feedback process for the Community Sports Trust is a fantastic opportunity to engage volunteers and all partners in a meaningful way. The Village Games staff are all so passionate about their work which directly impacts on rural communities in Derbyshire so it's important to get their input on the professional development requirements of the team."
