A peer review is a form of review that allows employees to provide feedback on their colleagues (also referred to as 360 feedback). Peer feedback can be added to a review whenever you create a new review cycle in CharlieHR.

Note: Currently peer feedback is available to all reviewers - enabling it when creating a new review cycle ensures your team know this is expected, rather than optional


How to add peer feedback to a review cycle

Start setting up a new review cycle from Grow > Reviews > 'New Review Cycle'.

While creating the review you can opt to include peer feedback during step three - choosing reviewers:

If enabled, the launch email Charlie sends will notify your team that peer feedback should be gathered during this review:


Gathering and sharing peer feedback during the review cycle

Once a review cycle starts, the reviewer will be request peer feedback from any colleague in Charlie - admins don't need to assign who will be giving feedback prior to the cycle starting. Peers will receive an email letting them know they have been asked to provide feedback by the reviewer on a specific team members, which they can share via a link in the email.


This will then be accessible to the reviewer, who can read, edit (including anonymise if they wish) and share that feedback. Once submitted, the reviewee is immediately able to view the peer feedback in their review cycle alongside feedback from their reviewer.

You can read and share our guide for line managers and reviewers with your team.

Note: Only reviewers can currently request and add peer feedback on behalf of the person that is being reviewed. If the team members themselves or admins typically select who to request peer feedback from, we'd recommend passing that information to the reviewer outside of Charlie for now.
