Following on my recent musings about performance management and judgement vs metrics, I wonder out loud: Why Do We Have “Performance Evaluations”, Anyway?
I'm quite curious about the experiences of folks on here at https://social.coop -- if any of you has worked in co-operative and other more self-organized structures, can you share if/how were "performance evaluations" done? And, relatedly, did compensation have any component related to "performance"? (And if so, how did that work?)
@anaulin I've probably avoided positions where someone might performance evaluate me.
Though would love more of: "supporting someone to grow in the ways that fit them best"
I've been pondering a way to distribute money in a team and maybe the same idea applies to evaluations: workers themselves tend to know who is up to what, so if everyone did score voting about everyone else, might quickly work it out p2p style.
Might not work without generally transparent/open personal dynamics though.
Making discussions like these are what I think makes social coop brilliant.
Hopefully we can develop Social Coop into a 24/7 "helpline" for coops around the world to ask for similar advice and support.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
