Johnson & Johnson Advanced Behavioral Technology (JJABT)

Johnson & Johnson Advanced Behavioral Technology

(JJABT), based in Denver, Colorado, has instituted a new 720-degree feedback system.

The most important consideration in implementing the

system is choosing the right individuals to be raters.

To assemble the rating group, JJABT employees

develop a list of key internal and external customers with whom they interact and then recommend five to ten individuals to serve as raters.

Johnson & Johnson Advanced Behavioral Technology (JJABT)

The JJABT 720-degree appraisal form includes items such

as :- Does the employee : Follow up on problems, decisions, and requests in a timely fashion? Clearly communicate his or her needs/expectations? Share information or help others? Listen to others? Establish plans to meet future needs? Adhere to schedules? Raters score these items on a scale ranging from 1 (needs improvement) to 5 (outstanding). Space is also provided for the raters to make written comments.

Johnson & Johnson Advanced Behavioral Technology (JJABT)

This represents a combination of the comments and ratings

from the various raters and the supervisors own feedback on the rates performance. Typically, managers include a mean score and distribution range for each item. JJABT managers stress that the key is to look for trends or patterns in the data. After summarizing the data, the supervisor conducts the formal appraisal interview with the rate. In this way, it is hoped that the 720-degree appraisal can become less an evaluative tool and more a comprehensive system for enhancing communication, facilitating selfdevelopment, and improving performance.

Advantages to Johnson & Johnsons 720 degree appraisal

The raters are selected from a list of key external

and internal customers developed recommendation by the employees ..


Criteria by which the rates are evaluated are

clearly defined by the supervisor .


the supervisor evaluates the work performance , the raters evaluate the behavior aspect of the rate.

many reputable sources expressed doubts about the

validity and reliability of the performance appraisal process. Some have even suggested that the process is so inherently flawed such that it may be impossible to perfect it. An attempt was made to find out what employees feel about the whole process of Performance Appraisal (as part of Performance Development [PD]) and how it is practiced as well as how it is linked to rewards and recognitions in Barclays Bank of Ghana.

Questionnaires were administered to the Retail Function

employees only, using a combination of techniques; simple random sampling, purposive sampling and quota sampling. Secondary data on PD were reviewed and Management of the Bank was contacted through the Human Resource Department to show how the PD system should work and how it feels about employee satisfaction as far as PD is concerned.


From results obtained, employees made it clear that line managers do not always carry out the face to face appraisals or reviews and feed backs not given after such sessions. It was viewed that, instead of making the PD process a developmental tool to enhance performance, it has been turned into a discriminatory, punitive and/ or judgmental process. While Management of the Bank rated the PD process as very effective, employees think otherwise that its rather demoralized and demotivated. Staff are not satisfied while Management insists there is everything in place to make them satisfied

These show the break in communication as far as

Performance Development is concerned, between Management of the Bank and employees. It was then recommended that monitoring measures be put in place to ensure that the right things are done and line managers carry out the face to face review discussions and provide feedback to team mates as well as ensure team work by making all staff aware of the performance improvement measures.
