The Challenge

The company Barba Stathis, a leading company in the field of vegetables, has a history of more than 50 years. The new Management of the company, in the last 4 years, has adopted 2 basic principles regarding its operation which are none other than the sustainability and continuous improvement of the organization.

It is now more necessary than ever to be staffed by the leaders of the new era, who will implement the plan, with HR playing a primary role in the development of existing and new Managers who will have the appropriate professional skills

The Solution

A specialized 360°feedback program was designed and implemented in combination with the completion of the OPQ professional personality questionnaire, the provision of personalized verbal and written feedback and the design of personalized development plans. In more detail the stages included:

 

  • Special workshop with consultants and HR to determine the Competency framework.

  • Kick-off meeting with the presence of the entire Leadership team and the evaluated managers for the description of the project, questions and answers, questions, etc.

  • Presentation of the tools to the Feedback providers (raters) but also of the importance of the evaluation process (benefits, risks)

  • Sending questionnaires to the e-mail addresses of the evaluators

  • Complete the questionnaires electronically and with absolute confidentiality

  • Analysis of questionnaires by the consultant and production of reports

  • Appointment of consultant and appraisee meetings in the presence of the relevant Director to provide feedback

  • Sending summary results and reports to HR from the consultant

  • Creation of a presentation of group results by the consultant to the company's Management and HR

  • Presentation of group results to the management of the company by a consultant

  • Creation of personalized individual development plans by HR and sent to appraisees

  • Implementation of actions from individual development plans

"The reason for choosing a partner for us, for such a demanding 360° Feedback project, is purely the many years of experience that the Evalion-SHL company has, the scientific staff it has, the tools it uses and the human-centered approach it has followed all these years. After all, I have my own experience of other projects in the past, how they came to fruition, the degree of acceptance by colleagues and the value they added to the organizations."
