Project Details

What We Need
  • A documented process outlining how to administer a top-down, peer-to-peer, or a full 360 employee review process
  • A communication plan to share the process with others in the Organization to help them understand the approach and desired outcomes
  • Recommendations on tools that can be used to collect feedback (anonymous or identified) and organize quantitative and qualitative results
  • Best practices for rolling out the performance reviews, and coaching advice for managers and individual contributors
Additional Details

We are looking to create a new employee review system. We have used different review strategies in the past, but nothing has ever stuck. We are looking to have a more solid process that can hold us accountable to sticking to it!

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a few examples of previous staff review forms, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have an employee handbook, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $8,686 , allowing us to offer greater opportunities in environmental stewardship.

This project is important because it will help create greater systems of feedback within the organization and hold the organization accountable in providing these systems.

Our Mission

The Lower East Side Ecology Center (Ecology Center) has been pioneering community-based models in urban sustainability since 1987. Focusing on the diverse and complex setting that is New York City, the Ecology Center has successfully replicated programs in composting and electronic waste recycling services, environmental education and stewardship of urban green spaces.

What We Do

The Lower East Side Ecology Center was founded in 1987 as one of the first organizations to offer community-based recycling and composting programs in New York City. We started our programs by providing innovative recycling drop-off centers. Today, the Ecology Center offers free public compost collection and education, electronic waste recycling, stewardship of public open space, and environmental education. Our programs focus on offering opportunities for all New Yorkers to learn about environmental issues facing NYC and to take responsibility for solving those problems.
