If you want to include clients, external consultants, or freelancers in a 360° review, you can nominate them as a peer in a review cycle without adding them as a user in Leapsome. This allows people not part of your organization to give feedback as a peer on the competencies or questions in an assessment without needing to log into Leapsome.
How to add external peers
The setup of a review cycle template remains the same, with one additional step in the ‘Scope’ settings. An admin or template owner can select the option to ‘Allow external collaborators as peers’ to allow assessment invitations to be sent to an external email address.
Please note: updating this setting in a template will only affect future cycles that use this template.
During the peer selection process, the reviewee or manager can add an external peer by entering their email address, and Leapsome will recognize them as an external collaborator. They can be added alongside internal peers. Depending on the cycle settings, a manager may need to approve the peers before anyone is notified to fill in an assessment.
What will the external peer receive?
External peers will then be able to complete the review just like an internal peer, assessing the competencies and questions included in the cycle.
Once the review is completed, it will be included as part of the assessment alongside other peer reviews, the manager assessment and the self-assessment.
