s concerned with managing the performance of human resources: goal setting, performance appraisal, and reward systems;

One company that has set itself on course to further democratising and opening up its employee evaluation process is car market leader Maruti Udyog;

The company has introduced a unique 360-degree feedback system, starting with its senior leadership;
The new system has been co-developed with Ernst & Young and has been put in place recently.

Maruti started with 360-degree feedback process with employees in the top management such as chief general managers and general managers; Their performance will now be assessed based on feedback from their peers and junior management employees within the same department; Before that, their performance was being appraised only by the Directors and the Managing Director;

Ernst & Young, in consultation with Maruti, has listed a set of leadership competencies that are expected in a general manager; Based on that, E&Y prepared a questionnaire to which peers and subordinates can respond online; Although acknowledged as an effective tool for leadership development in the West, Indian companies have been shy of introducing such a feedback system for fear of disturbing traditional hierarchical structures;

HR consultants feel that the critical issues in implementing such a system include assuring respondents that their feedback will remain confidential and convincing the person receiving the feedback that this is a development tool and not an appraisal tool;

Maruti has handled this by getting E&Y and other consultants to make detailed presentations to the senior mgt personnel before process got under way;
The company has a committee of general managers, called Human Resource Inter Divisional Committee (HRIDC), which is consulted on all major HR issues.

The initiative has been unveiled with an e-mail by Maruti's Managing Director, asking people to support the online questionnaire process; The 360-degree feedback system also include a selfappraisal by the general manager; At the end of the process, he can compare his selfappraisal with the assessment of his subordinates and peers; One of the benefits that Maruti is hoping to get out of the 360-degree feedback process is the sense of empowerment and importance felt by subordinates, when they are asked to offer their feedback about their superiors;
