Porto Tech Center (PTC) is an IT-development center of approximately 200 engineers based in Porto, Portugal where we create and maintain online platforms, data warehouse solutions and mobile applications. Like every other Tech organization, nowadays, we are also facing tough competition for talent. There are multiple challenges related to recruitment, talent retention, people development, people´s career progression ant others. Obviously those are all relevant and important matters but we have put extra care and attention on one of those, which is “Performance Evaluations”. Throughout multiple years we have constantly improved it via changing the process and methodology, training evaluators, changing periods and by introducing new software tools to support the whole exercise. One of the “hot topics” have been whether or not and how to implement 360 performance feedback in our organization. We have spent time on benchmarking with other similar companies and also explored different HR software’s that offer it as part of their core functionality. Nevertheless, we ended up doing something very simple, agile and out of the box.
